View Full Version : Sooty pipe

wondering if anyone can offer advice--of a helpful nature-- fr my 800
Both pipes are sooty,I was running 98 in it but heard that it was not recommened for carbed bikes so last weekend i changed to 91 and i think the damn thing is going better now than ever before but the pipes are still the same,did 750ks on 91,so that should have cleaned the system out.
checked the air filter and its clean and i change oil every 5000ks
i've done 14000ks on it since dec 05 and it goes well ,does not use excessive oil or smoke
hotter plugs maybe ????

If the bikes running fine personnally I wouldn't worry about it.

As Bonez says... but IMO 98 is the beter fuel, 91 is shit and 95 shiter.
Is the bike newish? if so should run cleaner, might need leaning up but if the plugs arnt sotty then dont worry bout it and if its an old girl... well thats just age.
