Exclamation My 05 sounds like a V-Twin

So, I rode to a friends house the otherday, then when I left my bike couldn't hold an idle. So I restarted and gave her some throttle. Enough to ride out of the driveway where another friend was pulling in. I stopped the bike and talked for 2 min. Then I started it up again fine and rode home. Then about 6 hours later that night I tried to start her up again to no avail. The Engine sounded very much like a V Twin. Very low and like it had a very seperated firing order. I'm guessing its something with the ignition....?

I have a powercommander on it, full Micron system, K&N air filter, and Dyno Tuned... all done by Wheeler. I've taken the bike apart so I could access the sparkplus. Took the spark plugs out and noticed there was oil around the threds and the actually sparking part was quite dark. ( much like http://328compact.co.uk/files/images/swap/DSCN0741.JPG but not doubled ) All my spark plugs had oil on them but some were worse than others.

Could this be the only prolem do you all think? What else could cause this problem? What else should I go ahead and change while I've got it stripped down just to make sure?

ANY HELP or sujjestions would be appreciated!

Deals Gap anyone?

Roger. I'm thinking that aught to do it. I'm also cleaning the air filter, but it wasn't too bad.

That they did! And you know what.... They did the trick. Grantid it was about 5 hours of labor, about 40 pictures to help me remember where everything went, and $63.18 of new spark plugs; but hey, ITS ALIVE!!!!!

Thanks 02BlueR6 for your help!
