What Should Enging Break-in Oil Look Like

Recommended Posts

My 570 was sold to me as new. After trailering it home, I discovered it had 39 miles on it and the break-in oil had not been changed. The dealer gave me a bunch of mumbo jumbo about how the miles might have been put on there but I am concerned about the break-in oil. When I drained it, it was a very light milky brown color (almost like light chocolate milk made with water) and the viscosity seemed like almost zero. Is this normal?

Thanks is advance for any insights.

Yeah, it's not supposed to look that way, usually oil turns that color when the engine was swamped with water...

      Submitted for your approval, my 2009 Joyner T2 1100.  I'm only selling it because I recently purchased a Kawasaki Teryx, and the Mrs says one has got to go.  I was the 3rd owner I believe.  It is definitely used, but I have tried to maintain it to the best of my abilities.  I would say it is in fair shape for the years and the miles.  The thing runs and sounds great.  It always turns heads at every group ride I've ever been on.  It has 30" maxxis zilla tires all the way around, except for the spare,  fairly new wheel bearings all the way around, and a fuel controller from SilverBullet so you don't have to worry about the O2 sensors or any of that nonsense.  Any questions please feel free to DM me here.  I know this is a new account.  I hadn't been on the boards for a couple years and cant seem to recover my old login.  I used to go by ILFarmerT2 and got a lot of good info from the joyner board.  I am hoping to get $3000 for this rig.   Machine is located in East Central Illinois.   Thank you.

      I am looking at a Joyner Renegade 2018.
      I am new to side by sides. I want something to drive on side roads as well as take in desert and woods. I need the bed to carry items. I will not be crazy driver but want to get off beaten path. Is this a good dependable vehicle?
