intake valve deposit
The bike is a 2007 K1200R Sport that sat for about six years on the side stand before I got it with 2300 miles on the odometer. I immediately removed the fuel tank to replace the leaking quick-connect fitting, and looking into the throttle bodies I noticed the intake valve on the right side has a nasty-looking carbon deposit, while the left-side intake valve is clean; all 4 cylinders. Today with 13,500 miles those same deposits are still there. Anyone else seen this and/or know why? Sorry for the out-of-focus pic, but you can still see the difference in the intake valves.
