Before start.



Engine running.



Engine running


I cant find that the oil level is rising or colant level is beeing lower.


Could it be a small amount of water?


The oil has about 1,5 hours.

From the pictures your oil appears to be fine.

My guess is you are checking the window immediately after shutdow.

What you are likely viewing is aerated oil which is normal considering the arsenal of gears near said window.

Kind Regards,
Dale

Ah, cold and Humid.

Such will certainly steam your oil window unless the engine is brought to full operating temperature. (ie a good ride)

Go for a good long ride as such will prove of great benefit to you and your new steed.

Best Regards,
Dale

Re: Colour of oil in the sight glass.

Remember, fill with oil only halfway up the oil window.
