    Newbie...dumb question

    When I just checked the dipstick for my new gtr 215 it only has a clear liquid on it. Not sure what it is and dont want to take it to the lake if there is no oil in it. Any help would be appreciated. Sorry for the dumb question

    Uhhhh...... Oil is relatively clear when it and the vehicle are new. Is the texture oily??? Don't know what other fluid could be in there???? Chances are, if the unit is brand new, and came from a dealer, it was prepped and started before turned over to you. I would think you are ok, and are covered under a factory warranty. Enjoy!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the quick response I did. There is definitely some I guess oil there lol. Just was expecting black. This is my first jet ski so just trying to make sure I am doing everything right and checking everything out. It is full it says just wanted to make sure that was normal.

    New oil isnt black. Actually if you look after an engine properly you should never get actual black oil out of an engine.
