Is the blackness(carbon) on the threads or on the porcelain? If it's just on the threads, then that is completely normal. The porcelain is the part to worry about. If it is lightly brown, then all is good, if it is where the carbon is, then you are too rich and need to go down a jet size.
What is the size of your snorkel? If it is smaller to 2in. it is smaller than the stock intake tube and will cause you to run a bit rich.
Easy to remember, porcelain white or ashy = too lean got up in jet size
porcelain black or sooty = too rich go down jet size.
