Lean it out slightly. Leaning will decrease CO. It will also decrease HC UPTO A POINT then HC will go up (due to lean misfire). Theses are very high, check for misfire (ignition system most likely ca

High CO and High HC - Running rich. Lean it out. Be careful too lean and you'll have lean misfire (in which case you'll have high HC and low CO). Also as you lean it it will become harder to ignite.
