Q: Hello, while doing my 10k service, I drained my Harley primary oil and it came out very silver on my 2014 FLHTK. Took it to the dealer and they pulled the case and said they found nothing wrong and said it was normal. Talking to several other people they all said the same, you better get it check, they have never seen oil that silver( I have pics). What’s your opinion on this? I would love to ride this bike over a 100k. They did the 1k service with synthetic oil in all 3 areas.
A: Usually that silver color is aluminum. We suggest removing your outer primary cover and inspecting further. Look for any unusual wear or markings inside.
