2012 F4 RR Cylinder head question

Hi Boys and Girls,

Does anyone know if epoxy is used in the ports by the factory?

My bike has done 6k miles, and we had to replace two inlet valves as we found that it failed the leak down test on those inlet valves.

When the cylinder head was out, epoxy was found in the ports and I would like to find out if anyone else has seen this?

This will make removal of the valve guides tricky as the epoxy might start to melt.
