Re: How can you tell when your bike is running too lean or t
Also look inside the tip of your pipe. If its thick black or alot of it, its on the rich side. Its there isn't much or any at all or a white tent, its running on the lean side. Generally bikes run fine from the factory unless you modded the bike with a map.
