It's called a corona stain, it has no effect on performance.

What's funny is I had a faint rattle at certain rpms with the higher load props and I was thinking it was the CF baffles rattling, but could never track it down... Bet any money it was the arc'ing.

So all along this has been a 132.5cc boxer triple, LOL!!!

Now that is just plain funny.
My kind of humor.
A light laugh, now coffee.
Thank-you Jack.

Awesome!! Thanks. I checked the plug and cap over this morning and everything seems to be 100% and I'm getting a reliable, consistent spark, so I agree... just a stain.

In fact, looking closely at the other plugs, they have some light staining also.

Makes sense, because I had a bad boot on my Mintor220 and it's very noticeable running on 3 vs 4 cylinders. The erratic temps on left rear cylinder are due to the temp sensor being loose. The faint rattle I could hear I'm chaulking up to the CF baffles still. I'll redo the baffles if I go back to the 190 quad.

As for Corona, I can't drink that stuff - too high in alcohol - Coors Light is all I can handle, LOL
