Are these known junk that can be suspected of dumping extra fuel all the time?
I think that is your choke, only use at first start. Turn off when running and your mixture should be better, or at least give you a better baseline.
For baskets, I use a cheapy rear rack with a milk crate bolted to it. Can carry a 24 box of beer, and a couple of frozen pizza's no problem. Oh, or a propane tank to filling station. I've had a 50lb bag of salt in it too. Even lumber too(cut to 4' though). Pretty sturdy for what it is.
