overtheedge86 is on a distinguished road

What you see in the pic was manually cleaned out with a brush and shop vac. Also flushed some 2 stroke gas with the pan off to cut the crud. I have had the pan off 3 times now to clean the pick up screen again, the last of which had very little debris in the bottom of the pan compared to the other times. I think i may be getting to the last of it, may drop the pan again later this week to check out the screen and condition of the oil.

Thanks for the input but i think im almost through the sludge. Actually confident enough to drive it to work today about 60 miles round trip and it did fine, warm idle about 15-20 psi but shot right up with rpm.
