Grey wire removed, (looks to be taken out of the connector instead of just cut, glad to see that) throttle stop removed, exhaust pea shooter removed.
Bike was advertised as being stock.
Digging into it more, found mud inside the air box. And some right at the lip, behind the air filter. The air boot step up going to the carb appears to be clean though. Hopefully nothing got that far as to the carb/motor. From what I can see of the head intake, looks very clean.
Pulled tank, and theres mud caked inside the spark plug hole. As in, removing the spark plug dirt will fall into the motor.
Im eager to pull the valve cover and see what I got myself into. To check the valves, etc.
Bike fired up good, sounded normal. Its middle of winter in the midwest, so didnt exactly get much of a test ride. Didnt get into it, just down the road and back making sure it shifted through all the gears. Ran well and idled well despite being 20 deg that day.
More I check into stuff, more Im thinking about pulling the motor out to get it clean.
Am I being paranoid in wanting to pull it? Or should I dig farther in the motor?
