    Help with what we see here???

    Why is top of head getting discolored? Thanks Is there suppose to be a gasket under what I beleive to be air suction cover. There is none and the botls are tight. Dealer put new head on and now this is happening. Engine runs strong.

    that is carbon/oil. It is leaking under the cap. Take it off and put some rtv silicone gasket. Guess you could have shown me this at the causeway tommorow, but since I dont have a working ski, I will answer here.

    the cover seals on the valves themselves make sure you undo the two bolts on each and check the valves are installed assuming its an '07

    bingo.you got it in 1 Corey
    most tinkers remove the valve and fit the blank off's and dont realise the valve need to stay to act as seal

    but thats just my opinion on a worthless Ultra platformm ()

    It is an 08. They are just blockoffs from the factory.
