Hi everyone,

just got my first bike (2009 ninja 250r). It seems to be running great, but I am deciding whether or not to change the oil. I bought it used and the oil looked ok. The bike itself only has 6800 miles on it, but the oil looks dark. Is there a specific color I should look for to know when to change it?

Thanks

Welcome.

The oil should be a clear tannish color when new. It will get darker over time but if you're in doubt change it along with a new filter. Be sure to get motorcycle specific oil as well and to the proper weight. Good luck.
