Looks like you've got some carbon deposits as well. The media seem to be thick and high quality.

That's the blackest oil filter I have seen in a long time,

..........and it came off a GASOLINE engine, not a diesel.

Stock pipe, flashed ECU so maybe tuned a bit rich IDK. I'll see what the plugs look like next time I pull those.

A/C = Automatic Clutch? No, just regular clutch

Tailpipe may have something to say

XSR900 ... Same engine too. I went with a larger than OEM sized Ultra. Tight getting it on, but fits fine.

That's a very dirty filter. IMO, I would go with ONE use per OCI.
Thanks for the C&P.
