What color is your oil?

Recommended Posts

The last couple of times that i have changed the oil on the transmission side of my 450 the oil has been a gray color.Is this normal?I know that on my other bikes this was normal because of the aluminum clutch plates.But I was told the 450 has steel plates.The first few times I changed the oil in this bike I didn't notice the oil beening gray but i was ising a different oil that was red so maybe it didn't show up with that oil.Now I have been using amsoil that is the color of motor oil so it shows up good.The bike runs fine and the clutch and tranny are working perfect ,But I was a little concerned when I saw that gray oil.Let me know what you think.

Mine is the same... is this normal? I change my trans oil every other motor oil change. I'm running synthetic Mobil 1 in both motor and trans.
