I just bought my 04 R6 used not too long ago. Has 15000 miles on it. Got around to putting some plugs in it today. When I pulled the old plugs out the threads and bottom where covered in oil. Do these bike have valve seal or ring problems? How difficult is a valve seal replacement? How much would a dealer (In general) charge for forgiving rings? What about for fixing a valve seal? Thanks for the help and if you need more info just ask.

You had oil on the plug or it was charred?
These had Liquid On Them




What makes you think it's oil?

Post a pic of the tip, that's what matters.. Some people use antiseize/graphite on the threads.
It's hard to see in the pic but right above my fingers at the bottom of the threads is liquid. It smelled and felt like oil.

At 15k you shouldnt have any valve issues. Hmmm im still leaning toward it being rich. What kinda gas mileage you getting, how many miles before the light comes on?
