Oil

Hi I'm new to this bike. 05 gsxr 600. Bought it less then a week ago. When I look in the oil window after I've been riding a little bit and engine is still on the oil looks foamy or a lot of little bubbles. Is this normal?

Re: Oil

Swap out the oil if you suspect something. See if the old oil looks normal. Oil with water in it tends to be whitish and foamy. Use a jaso ma rated oil.

I assume when you bought the bike, you changed the oil as soon as you got the bike home?

It was my neighbors 3 doors down. I watched him change it the day before I bought it.
