Unexpected passenger

Postby WingAdmin » Fri Mar 18, 2016 9:42 am

I was changing the plugs on my GL1500 this past week and found something interesting.

The plug wells are closed up - nothing can get in there, because the plug boots seal them:

I always blow out the plug wells before removing the plugs, to make sure there isn't any dirt or debris that can fall into the engine:

I then check to make sure they are clear - however, on this one, I could see something in there:

I used some long needle nose pliers and pulled it out, and found this little guy:

I have no idea how he got down in there, but he's been baked to a crisp!

It is odd place. I usually cook my snacks near the exhaust. :D
