Pics of my plugs.... How do they look?!

ImageUploadedByMotorcycle1355973768.823940.jpgImageUploadedByMotorcycle1355973808.691242.jpg

Just got done with my 10k! Learned a ton, had a blast, and She feels great!! I havent had to change to many spark plugs before but I had an extra set so I swapped em out, I dont know how to tell good from bad besides wet plug = bad, so I was hoping my fine forum fellers would take a look at them and let me know how everything is!?

I agree looks stock and lean.

Sometimes when I reflect on all the beer I drink, I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work. I think, "It is better to drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."

They look fine. Typical lean burn plug, with oxidation from additives and mildly worn electrode from normal wear.

Without looking at them under a magnifying glass for porcelain blistering from heat (possible pre-ignition) they look like regular plugs and normal wear.

Normal is good! I got the bike tuned a few months ago so the lean issue was fixed. These are still the same plugs that have been on since day 1- as always thanks for the responses! This was my first big service and it feels great to have this done. So much info in this forum! I got stuck a few times but every answer I needed was here!
