Help out the retard please

I know I've heard about it/read about it before and that it isn't the end of the world, but my oil is a dark green and smells like gas. I got a 600 SS build on the engine. I am also an idiot when it comes to the inner workings of an engine.

I'm hoping/assuming the oil breaks down and changes color, but why the gas smell??

Thanks for any insight.

check compression.Ring blow by can cause this.

What model year? does it have a fuel petcock and carbs if so there's your problem (petcock)

it's a gsxr600 (modern with fuel injection and fuel pump)


I'm seconding motul motor oil, it comes that color (or atleast the older stuff does), it doesn't smell like gas though, it has a sweeter smell like coolant...

07 gsxr. It had motul in it so I guess that is the green, but let's hope the rings are good, that was what I thought too. I don't have a compression gauge or the time with my travel schedule. If you see a big smoky wreck next weekend you'll know who it is lol

LOL I had the same problem with my motard. I found out it was a motul oil that smelled sweet and was green. Confirmed it with motul and also a couple of racers/riders on this board. Keep an eye on ur oil level and make sure it doesn't change. I think you will be ok.
