Re: oil on spark plugs, is it normal?
Hey, thanks for all the replys first off.
There was some slight oil on the threads of the electrode that was wet when I removed them. And yes, there was about the same amount on all the plugs. Maybe #1 had the most and #3 had the least, but they were pretty even. The bike has just over 15K miles. It never burned oil and oil consumption was next to nothing before it went down. Right after I went down, I picked it up and rode it about a 1.5 miles back to my house and it sounded/felt fine (considering broken pride). Then (3 months later) I changed the oil and plugs and just started it up. It fired right up with a little smoke and rich smell at first, but I let it warm all the up until the fan kicked on at about 212 f, the entire time there was no rich smell (other than normal) and it revved and sounded like a champ. I'm thinking it could have been from laying over, but we'll see when I actually get it on the road. I'll keep you updated, thanks.
