Just did the first oil change on my brute. Rode maybe four or five miles and the oil already looks dirty. Anybody know why this is or what may be causing this?

my oil will look dirty after about 5 rides. and they arent long ones. maybe 2 hours each..
does it have a smell to it? I swear mine smells like gas but my stepdad says he cant smell fuel in it so i dunno.

Changed mine at 20 hrs and it was amber to dark red on it's way to black. Not black like my dirtbikes after riding an hour.

I have a Honda 450 4 stroke and my son a Honda 150 4 stroke. They just dirty it fast and you can see it through the sight glass.

I wonder why some bikes dirty oil faster than others..
My stepdad's vinson and my prairie 360 can be ridden a looong time before the engine oil starts to look dirty.
it always looks new when you check it.

I'm going to change mine on the brute here shortly and I'll update.

Not sure why either but I've had awesome results with Rotella T synthetic. Used to run Mobil 1 but feel I'm getting the same results for less money.

I used kawi oil and filter. Yes it does smell like gas. At least I'm not alone in this. I been thinking alot about this. Don't want to have bearing issues already. Maybe it could be something with that crank case vent to the airbox? Not real sure how that works though.
