I just got a 2011 yz450f that has had some work done to it. I drained the oil and noticed that it had green oil. It looked like it was heavier than a 10-40. Does anyone know what this might be? Just worried that it might need a heavier oil as the motor has some work to it. Please let me know if anyone has any input. Thanks.

I use Motul 300V and it has a green tint to it.

If it was green, it means you probably drained fresh oil.

I'm sure Motul 5000 is green. It's probably that mate.
