I took this from my friends bike, the plugs are covered in oil.
The plugs were installed but not tight enough so they were loose.

Dry and Wet Fouling
Although there are many different cases, if the insulation resistance between the center electrode and the shell is over 10 ohms, the engine can be started normally. If the insulation resistance drops to 0 ohms, the firing end is fouled by either wet or dry carbon.
If so how to fix this? I've already changed the oil and spark plugs. The oil was pretty black, more than my school shoes.

For crude correct specs, NGK recommends 1/16 of a turn after the plug has been seated by hand. Thats for this style of plug, anyway.

Yeah lol at peoples obsession with torquing everything to exact specifications!

Make sure your fairing bolts are torqued correctly also thx.

people these days tend to rely on there torque wrenches way to much. its a spark plug ffs
True, but its better to be right than wrong, correct? Also, if someone doesn't know, go with the torque wrench so they get an idea...gotta learn somehow.

If I owned a torque wrench, I'd use it on anything soft and expensive (such as putting spark plugs in...). It's ignorant to give shit to people who do the right thing.
