I did a hard, full throttle run up a decent hill today. At about 90 mph, I pulled the clutch and killed it. The plugs were all pretty much white. There was only a small amount of tan on them in...

BA80,

You have to hate that! On the bright side, when you tear it back down to replace that seal you decided not to replace originally, it is MUCH easier to get apart and MUCH cleaner too!
