While doing the valve lash adjustment I pulled the spark plug and discovered two vertical cracks in the porcelain, I'm guessing from running hot. Since then I pulled the cap off for the pilot screw and turned 2.5 out and am going to a synthetic oil to try to get it to run cooler.



Has anyone else seen this on their bikes?

Any other tips for cooler running?



Thanks

After pouring over the net looking for other instances of this happening I doesn't look like a heat issue but more of a defective or improperly installed (over torqued by the dealer) plug. Its been replaced with a shiny new NGK that I'll be keeping an eye on!



Thanks for the advice guys!
