The left (clutch side) cylinder is acting funny. It's burning quite a bit of oil (very black spark plug), and the exhaust pulses feel really weak against my hand compared to the other side. Also, there is a stutter in the exhaust; it's not as rythmic as the right side.

On a good note though, both cylinders are making good compression. One was 10bar and the other was 9.75bar. So, I'm thinking that the problem may be in the valvetrain somewhere. I'm gonna have a leakdown test done as soon as I can afford it, and in the mean time I'll just ride her gently. Any advice?
