Did you install new plugs before doing the test? How long did you ride before checking the plugs. When I was doing the intial jetting on my DVX I found it did take a little bit of riding time before any color would turn up on the plugs.
As far as being better rich or lean, for more safety it is better to run slightly on the rich side as the engine will not run as hot. A way to test your jetting without having to tear into the carbs again is to start restricting your intake snorkle, if it tends to run better with less air then yes you are lean.

Get a 2 dollar 1 1/2 inch reducer in the mean time, it slips roght on the end of your snorkel, and see if that helps. Thats what i had to do, until i figure out my jetting
