Grey oil

Recommended Posts

Just changed my oil this morning on my rm100 and as usual I get a grey tint in it. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this problem with there bike, and what causes it.

I'm just hoping that it's not a bad seal or that in leaking coolant. I rode mostly wet and muddy conditions so perhaps I've gotten water in it?... Idk

Anyway here's a picture:

For the most part this is totally normal and I've actually seen it a lot worse.  The gray stuff is actually the clutch fibers slowly wearing down and it's really the main reason why we need to change the oil.  If it looked like chocolate milk then you would have coolant leaking into the trans.  So don't worry, just keep changing your oil on a regular basis.
