I just changed the spark plugs in my bike. Super easy to do. Anyway here is a pic of the.old plugs. Sorry for the crapy pics I used my phone. Do they look like its running to lean or rich? I don't know how to read them.

take the pic with them on the floor or table. It looks like the camera is focusing on your feet.

how many miles are on them? They look like good to me. The white part of the plug looks like it is starting to turn a little brown and not sooty and nasty. I would not be concerned with anything if they came out of my bike looking like that. Maybe a little rich. If they have been in there for a while. If they are new and look like that then you are rich.

They are looking a little dark to me.

There are better 'plug analysts' on here than me.
But, if they are the correct plugs changed within the specified interval; it looks like you are running pretty rich.

Check out this chart.

Based on your miles, those plugs look pretty normal.
