Default Rich/Lean

Plugs are telling me one cylinder is running rich and the other lean. The rear cylinder is the lean one. Ideas?

I'm still new to Victory but have you run injector cleaner on a regular basis? With the Crud they call gas anymore the injectors can clog easier as the gas can gum up.
If you ride daily and use about 4 to 5 tanks a month you can run injector cleaner every 2 months. If you are riding about 1 tank full a month I think you should put some injector cleaner in about every tank full. This is only my opinion though, but its what I've done for years with other bikes and cars.

Born in the deepest jungles of India, I was raised by a friendly bear, until I was kidnapped by a pack of unruly baboons who taught me the finer points of swing jazz, all the while being stalked by an incompetent python and an evil but mis-understood tiger... Ummm, wait a minute, that's the Jungle book, no I was raised just outside of St. Louis, But...in the deepest jungles of a middle class neighborhood .

Like @Jakvis said it wouldn't hurt run some fuel system cleaner through. But also its true that each cylinder can have different fueling needs. Tuners like the Dyno Jet PCV and map each cylinder separately. My dyno guy, did this when I had my last tuning done.

Will throw some injector cleaner in, but also think it might be because I have the LLoyd's Idle Air Valve. My Indy says you need two, instead of one.
