before I get too far, this is one plug after 20 min of idle. (started with new plugs. What do you guys and girls think?
Too lean?
thanks.

Nope, not lean at all... they look perfect.

If they were lean, you'd see white powder looking around the ground strap
and the insulator. The rim of the plug tube would be a little pitted looking
or the gold coloring would be stripped off.

BTW, just some advice...

Put some anti-seize on those plug threads.
It will keep the plugs from seizing and keep them from being hard
to get out after a few miles.
Just a small amount though... don't glob it on... too much will change the heat
range of the plug.

You need to check them after a WOT engine kill above 3/4 throttle. Checking them after idling only tells you about the slow mixture screw and pilot jet (which looks ok).

Thanks, I will try that next time I change the plugs,
I ended up ordering a 140 142 144 146 jets from dynojet,
the guy I talked to couldnt beleive I was running lean with a 136 and 138 jet.....
I guess there 108 is equal to the stock size...
so they should be showing up in the next day or so, and I hope it takes care of the problem.
