Question Tech Question

I just bought a 2005 K1200LT. I started it up and turned the throttle a few times and saw a black substance in the liquid from the exhaust. Should I be concerned?

Re: Tech Question

It is probably just carbon in the exhuast mixed with a bit of water from condensation. Nothing to worry about.

Now...make sure it isn't oil or something like that, but most LT's will leave a spot every now and then.

Re: Tech Question

I agree with Pastor Jack on many things--this one also! Older autos will do the same thing.
