I really hope it isn't burning oil, I've already had to deal with one bike burning oil that turned into a nightmare.

That one is worn out and it looks like it wasn't fully tight, close, but not fully...that's why the threads are black.

Check for a stuck open thermostat, it will make the engine run too cool and cause carbon buildup about like that.
