Ktm 300xc Grey oil

Recommended Posts

I have a 2012 ktm 300xc which I purchased 4 months ago. I have changed the oil 4 times and it keeps coming out Grey/black. I just changed the water pump seal after the 2nd oil change. I am not losing any coolant and there is nothing crazy in the oil. Is it just going to take a while to clean out or??? I have had a dozen Yamaha 2 strokes and never had oil come out Grey/black.

It's the aluminium plates in the clutch pack , change them out for steel and oil will stay cleaner longer

Water in oil will be white, milk color.
Gray color is clutch plates.

Every two stroke I've had, that I rode hard, had hideous looking oil come out.
