The oil is getting grey after only 200 kilometers. Not brown or white, but grey. Oil smells exhaust or gas, and looks a little bit thin.
The level on the radiator and dipstick is constant. I have changed the oil many times because of the grey color, and at last i gave up and had a full top end rebuild to eliminate coolant leakage worries, with new gaskets, piston and rings. That did not help, eighter..!
My daily rides is only two short (and slow driving) trips on the road to my work in slightly cold weather (5 - 15 degrees here in Norway). 10 kilometer (and 10 minutes) eatch way. Is it possebly condensation? Try another oil type? Any ideas, anybody?
The problem seemes to start when i changed to this oil, but can be coincidentally:
I'm usin red Etylenbasert Glykol coolant. The bike has only 6000 kilometers, and is a 2009 model.
