... isn't that a sign of running too richly?

Can you post a pic of yours?

I think that's normal, as long as it isn't a lot. I always have a bit of "soot" on the bottom lip of my tips after my 30 mile round trip commute to work each day. I just wipe them down every other day or so long with my chromies. I had the same thing on my Honda. I think most modern engines are set slightly on the rich side for safety's sake.

im sure you 'blow it out' every so often,
This IS Kenny you're talkin' about, ya know. If it wasn't for CA traffic, I doubt that his FX would ever be at idle except when shifting to/from park.

FWIW, I've got the same soot, and yes, I "blow it out" nearly every day...gotta keep the pipes clean :D

If you are going to represent jersey, then you have to change your location. Nice plates though. :) Don't worry about the soot. That's normal. All it indicates is that there is a little incomplete combustion. Meaning that your air to fuel mixture is a little rich w/ more fuel than air.

Re the avatar and my location - long story short - born and raised on Long Island, lived in northern NJ (Bergen/Hudson) for the past 8+ years, moved to SoCal in February... just trying to stay true to my roots!

Driving around LA with my NJ plates for a few months after I moved really stood out in a nice way (LOL) but then had to re-reg and my FX is LA-purchased so I will have Cali plates on those from the get-go.
