Is this ok?



This happens on both exhausts.

Only just got the bike so I'm a bit worried lol.

Oh no your bike has prostate cancer! Run!

My stockers did that quite a bit. Since you say you just got the bike and you are posting on this forum, I will offer you my experience: stop worrying about everything and just ride it. It's a good bike.

Due to all the crappy additives they put in the fuel etc.

It is NOT chain grease or lube. It has nothing to do with the chain in fact. It happens on both exhausts. There's not a chain on the right side, being further proof that the chain has nothing to do with it. It's exhaust soot spooge. Some do it, some don't. Either way not alarming. No, it's not engine oil that has passed by the rings. It's not engine oil at all. It happens when the combustion soot that builds up in the exhausts and moisture mix. That dark colored sooty mixture then gets pumped out of the pipes. Looks like oil but isn't. No worry. Ride on!

No.

Color balance is a bit on the warm side, and that zip tie on the far right needs to be trimmed.

Could be fixed in post, though.

This happens on mine too (2012 with standard cans and mapping). I was a bit alarmed at first because sooty deposits suggest that the engine is running a bit rich.

Actually, it probably IS running a bit rich, judging by the fuel consumption

Yea I hear that! The lowest miles to a tank I've had is 97 and the max 136.

So far anyway...

My '13 990 does this. It's just gasoline additives that are blackened by the brimstone hell that is the stock cat exhausts. Perfectly normal. This was also the case on an '07 GSPD I had and you have zero need to worry,
