So I put Tab pipes, k&n, and the fueler on my bike.. they sound great and I love the look of them. The setup is running really rich so I am taking it to a dyno on Friday. Since it is so rich, should I pull my spark plugs and clean them just before the dyno pulls? I didnt know if all that carbon build up on the plugs would mess with the dyno numbers. If i do have to clean them, can I just use carb cleaner, gas, or something like that? Thanks guys!

For the price of plugs and the effort to remove them i would always replace them. Inspection is interesting to see if there are any running issues, but dont spend time cleaning them.
When replacing always tighten with simple hand tools and always with a 'feel' that its tight enough. Never use a torque wrench or socket set with lengthy bars - way too easy to damage threads.

I agree. If your going through the trouble of checking them, just replace them and your done for at least another 10,000 miles.
