    1100 STX DI Oil in the intake

    I have a 2001 1100 STX DI and it was running rough last time I took it to the lake so I am cleaning everything. I pulled off the cover and found oil. What is causing this and how do I fix it? What else do I need to check while I am looking everything over besides the compression and plugs?

    The reed valves are leaking a little. Probably normal.

    I cleaned them out and check my plugs and they were black. I then replaced them with some used plugs I had that were in better shape. also saw that my wires to my emm were cut a little bit so I taped them. Now my ski has no power and top out at half the speed it should.
