Hi everyone, 

 

I have a 2019 Renegade Adrenaline 600R.  I purchased the sled in 2019 brand new from a dealer and I just did my first chain case oil change.  After 2 seasons and 740 miles the oil looked like this... 

 

This can't be normal.  Any thoughts?  Thanks for the help!

A small amount of condensation would be normal.

 

It looks like you have 8 ounces of questionable liquid in there from my perspective.

 

Have not seen this before, but I usually just put the drained oil into recycle and dispose, without looking through a clear container.

that's just water , unless espionage is at hand , 

 

 if you went through any water slush it will drive in past the seal , 

 

always a good idea to change that stuff yearly , 

 

best of luck

Thanks for the replies.  I definitely plan to change it every season I just didn't last year because the sled only had about 250 miles on it.  New oil is in and I will insect the drive shaft seal.  If it looks okay I'll run it then check through the top seal mid season.

I had milky looking oil in my brand new 850 XRS (2020) after 900 miles the first year. Thought, uh oh, not good. Changed it and ran it this year. Just changed it again after another 800 miles. Zero water in it. So, year one, I obviously had a situation that resulted in some water/condensation getting in there. No problem this year at all and I did nothing other than change the oil.

Noting much to loose sleep over, but I see your concern.  Change and you'll be good.  That's the benefit of changing annually.

That's why you should change your gear oil every year. Oil is cheap compared to replacing components and Oil...Check and adjust your chain tension regularly  :)

I find the first initial gear oil change will be the most contaminated.

I changed my 2020 600R chaincase oil at almost the same mileage.

 

My chaincase oil also contained milky liquid but probably the opposite percentage as yours.

 

I agree with previous replies that changing the oil every year is the way to go.

Thats pretty normal if your sleds are stored in a heated garage. Both of my 19s look like that every spring when I swap the gear oil out. Cold in trailer, on trail or at camp and put in Warm shop results in condensation. Pretty normal. My brother in laws 3 sleds never see a heated shop during the season and his gear oil never has any condensation in it. Nature of the beast.
What was I thinking? 3 sleds for 2 people! Anyone interested in a nice 16' 900ace Blizzard with 2953 miles? Thought I'd ask!
