You need to make sure your oil to gas ratio is being mixed correctly - dump out the gas and dispose of the fuel IAW state laws - mix fresh oil and gas fill - fire up the unit and let it run for 10 -15 minutes to get all the bad fuel out - replace or at least clean the plug and air cleaner

Lt1050 black smoke after 15 minutes

The black smoke and black spark plugs indicate that the engine is running very rich (ie too much fuel). This could be caused by the choke not opening fully after the engine starts and the fuel mixture is too rich OR the fuel mixture setting is opened too far.
Check the choke lever, make sure the choke is fully open when the choke is in the running position.
When the engine is running with the throttle is in the 3/4 rev position then adjust the fuel mixture to get the highest RPM.

Floods, strong smell of gas, hard to start, especially when hot

Choke might be stuck open or linkage is in a bind. Or its just running too rich.

My 1998 suzuki vs800 intuder bogs down when you take off and is burning rich and i need to know how to adjust the fule at the carbs

I would be much more inclined to check the choke, it sounds like it's stuck on or at least partially.
Any bike will do this if the choke valves are closed or partially closed even.
You might be surprised that the solution is as simple as turning off the choke (opening the valve) is the solution.
And yes, this would very much so cause the bike to run rich as well.
Good for starting up, not good for running!

Starts good cold with choke runs bogy until fully

You might be too rich on the pilot jet. (Too large)
Run it for a minute with the choke on, then shut the choke off, and let it run with just a little thrttle till it's warm. If it doesn't "clear" up, your jetting may be off. (The pilot does idle) Pull the plug to see what color it is. Black is too rich. (Too large of a jet)

I have a 1978 Yamaha DT175E. It is runnig rough like runnig rich but idles ok put on a new carb checked autolube oil pump and timiing,found that runs better when air box is not conected to carb but still...

Check the choke to see it is not stuck on.
Something is causing the bike to run rich as you said.
Make sure the throttle slide isn't stuck and is working ok.
Try a smaller size jet.
