Hey all, I recently bought a 2016 ninja 300 without an engine. I did the install, tried to start it and it won’t turn over. I then siphoned out the gas (to add fresh gas since I don’t know how long it’s been sitting) and noticed a oil like substance near the end of the siphon. What can it be? Do I need an new gas tank?

You shouldn't need a new tank. The oil residue might just be the effects of the old gas. I would try putting about 1/2 gallon of fresh gas in, shake the tank a bit and remove the gas to see if it is clean. If not repeat the process.

Can I assume the bike did actually turn over, but just wouldn't start?
