Really Black Oil?
I'm wondering if anyone else has had unusually black oil in their FZ?
I changed a sprag on a Mates FZ last week & noticed it had really black oil. I was a bit concerned as the previous oil change had been about 30 hours prior, however he seemed to think with all the short runs he'd been doing testing it may have been fuel in the oil. The consistency was quite thin.
However after the sprag was replaced it took 3.25 litres to top it up and we put a new oil filter on it.
Now after 3 hours run time on the weekend the oil is jet black again.

My oil is pretty black every time I change my oil. I've changed it about 8 - 9 times. I have 60+ hours on my ski.
It has been quite dark even after only a few hours. And quite thin also (GIO).

Hey Mandy, if it is concerning you why don't you get the oil tested this will tell you all sorts of things, my mate gets all his earthmoving oils tested to see how things are going. I could find out the company name for you if you want.

i get oils tested all the time wouldnt be too concerned sounds like GIO and normal carbon build ups to me. if the oil is black its doing its job color dont mean to much.
