Re: R6 valve job

Black smoke indicates that it might be burning oil. Make sure your gaskets are in place after putting the valve cover back on

Black=fuel
Blue=oil
White=coolant

Sounds like you may be burning an excessive amount of fuel.

New symptoms after you adjusted the valves = you did it wrong. Go back under the valve cover and you'll find the problem.
