Gents,
I have about 1,700 mi. on her now. ('09)
I wake up early just to hear her purrrr.
Looks like she is running a little "rich" here or is this normal???
A leetle rough @ idle, nothing terrible, seems smooth when she is up around 4000-7000 rpm's.





Appreciazte any observations!

Seems normal to me.
Looks just like mine.
Once in a while I'll clean it. :)

Normal, my 03 LTC does this too. A little extra cleaning will take care of it. I just use a little chrome cleaner.

Normal and I get a small black spot on the driveway where it warms up every time I start it

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.
