hi wonder if anyone can help out wit this,,,
the frame stores oil ,,i know that,, but does oil re circulate back from the engine into the frame?.
the reason i ask is because when i drain the frame oil its red [ castrol ] but the stuff from the engine is a worn grey colour

You should ask Clark about this. Quite a while back, I remember he talked about one of the frame oil lines on his bike was plugged with weld (from the factory). I'm not sure which line it was or how it affected his bike, but it may cause something like what your experiencing (oil not making it from the frame to the motor).
