looks a bit old but for sure not milky.


you would know if it was milky because it for sure looks like a milk shake

took a second look and the second pic looks a little off imo... can you but it in a clear container near some light?

The pale pic was taken with the flash on, I think that's why it looks like that. Its fairly new, yes but this is also my stunt bike so its over 200 degrees almost always

That's not milky.

If you want to really see what watery oil looks like - pour some faucet water on the oil you have just dumped out, and then take a look at it after it's mixed a bit. Once you see that kind of "milkshake" oil - you won't mistake it ever again.

I was looking at this older Silverado a few years back, and the guy showed me the oil from it - it distinctly looked like chocolate milk.

Looks fine to me. Oil that's gotten extremely hot can sometimes look like that, the anti-foam additives get broken down and it gets frothy.

If in doubt put a sample in a clear container and let it sit for a while. If it separates then you'll know.

Not milky... Second pic looks that way but the whole photo looks washed out due to the flash or lighting giving it a somewhat milky look
