    It depends on where you ride, and how often you do.

    The valve seats will pit with the salty moist air in the inlet, the valve stems will rust and pit, and the throttle valve will corrode... plus the seat for the IAC will get all smeggy too.

    I have a head in front of me now from a 4-tec with pitted valve seats, and trying to decide what the best plan is.

    It showed odd compression numbers..!!, opened her up, looked at the seats, and they are not sealing as they should do.

    $$$'s and unreliable future.

    can i simply take apart the throttle body and look for corrosion to tell if its bad?

    I don't fog my ski ...

    I just fire it off every week for a few minutes during the storage period.

    Here's what can happen

    Take a look at my thread....

    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=94556

    This was likely caused by salt water riding by previous owner and no fogging, plus no winterisation.

    Be warned!

    dumb question here... (JUST FOR JAMMER TO HAVE FUN WITH)

    Where do you spray the fogging oil if you don't have an aftermarket air filter kit?

    I just lubed the throttle body per manual directions.... and did some other maintenance stuff but didn't do any fogging.

    GO JAMMER.... LETER RIP!

    You spray it in the plug holes and pull the fuel rail &injectors and spray into the head... Ron
