Loading up spark plug

I have a question on a 2006 1000 classic the back plug seems to load up on initial start up and clean out after I rev up the motor, I have changed the plugs Monday this week and the problem still happens, the bike has just over 16000 miles, any ideas on what I can or should do? All and any help is much appreciated thank you.

Have you swapped around the spark plug cables; To see if it is a cable issue?

No matter what you ride. Just ride!

No I have not are the wires long enough to do that or are you suggesting I buy a new wire and try that?

when you changed the plugs what did they look like.check the choke cable cable isn't on. maybe a float is set wrong.. do not mess with the float unless you know what your doing.

try a heavy dose of carb cleaner. use only regular gas 87 or 89.a dirty air filter can cause a rich condition. and dont forget the pictures of the plugs.
