New bike, brown oil?
Hey guys, I have a 2010 gsxr 750 that is basically brand new. Picked it up from the dealer in November, had a few days of riding on it, changed the oil (Motul 3100 I believe, non syn) and let the bike sit for the winter.
We've finally had a few warm days so I started it up, double checked the oil level and have had it out for a few quick rides.
After yesterday's ride (a little longer than the other two, got it out on the highway etc) I had a look at the sight glass and noticed that the oil is brown.
It's still translucent, and it doesn't look "dirty" but I was somewhat surprised to see it change from the golden brown color to a medium/darker brown so quickly.
Would this be considered normal with a new engine?
