My research on the HF inspection cameras leads me to believe that the cheaper $100 model doesn't capture and save images, and the 16mm camera head doesn't fit through standard spark plug holes.  The more expensive $200 one does capture and save images, and has a camera head half as small - 8.5mm - which fits through spark plug holes...

FWIW, I opened my engine a few times and it looked like that.  The head did not concern me, the crusty piston did.  I wonder if something like Sea Foam done regularly could prevent that build up.  Don't have the bike anymore so no more data.

Yeah, I know you've graduated, Scott!

Thing is, I wanna figure out what's causing it rather than just figure out how to keep cleaning it up...

C/R too low.

Sorry, Gremlin - but pretend I'm stupid (it isn't hard!)... C/R?  Compression Ratio?

My latest compression test (not the same thing, I know) showed it pushing 160 psi...
