Just a quick question on metallic oil

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I am not going to lie I am pretty new to the hole 450 4 stroke thing so here goes I am very meticulous on oil changes I have had the bike about 6 months now when I got it the first thing I did was a oil change using high flo oil filter and hp4s full sythetic with maybe 3 hours on it I just did another oil with the same stuff and noticed a metallic tint to it. The oil is still pretty clear and the oil filter is clean no metal shavings at all so is this normal on these bikes?:thumbsup:

Engine side or transmission. Trans is normal to see some metallic tint due to friction material.

On my 08' I still get a few metal bits and that "metal" tint thing your talking about. Gotta remember, the bike is running at 8,000-12,000 rpms. That's gotta wear on some parts. I have been running Amsoil for years and am not worried a bit.
