Re: The Business End
Looks totally normal Dave. I also get black spot on drive when it sits & idles. No biggie.
BTW, if you haven't already noticed, parking on sidestand will result in lots of smoke on startup. To avoid this, put bike into first & put down sidestand, then tilt bike slightly to right for about 20 seconds before you lower bike onto sidestand.
As far as cleaning it goes, my bike gets a bath once a year whether it needs it or not. I'd much rather ride than polish chrome.
