Gear oil colour

Recommended Posts

my engine's clutch is separated from the reduction gearbox (dry clutch), so this is the reason why my gear oils does not turn black.

I don't know your one... but I think it's normal that when you have a wet clutch engine (running in oil bath) that the oil turns black in a short time by the clutch ferodo residuals.

On the motorcycles that are equipped with a wet clutch it is normal that the oil darkens after a short use. It does not turn deep black like the engine one, but it darkens.
