White plugs indicate a lean mixture, and a lean mixture can lead to
backfiring through the carbs.  Check your mixture and check for air leaks
by spraying carb cleaner around the carbs and intake manifold when the
engine is at operating temp (the leak may not open up until things are
nice and warm).  Check throttle shaft on the carbs for slop.
