Welp, decided to do chaincase oil now and to me it looks like the previous owner never changed it. Not to mention the chain was flappy as all hell and now I'm wondering how tight it needs to be.

Yes that's a paper towel electrical tape bandaid btw

Never changed. Finger tight is the chain spec. Clean it up well, new oil and go.

Beyond looking “used” it’s impossible to tell. What does the oil feel like as you rub it between your fingers? Is it gritty, rough or is it smooth, minor roughness? Clean the chaincase out with brake-Kleen, inspect chain, sprocket teeth, sprockets, for excess wear, security. Adjust chain to specs. Choose a good synthetic fill.

Thanks for the info gents, it was thinned out pretty good and the magnetic plug was covered pretty good. Just threw in some doo oil and went with the finger tight method

Most used sleds I've purchased look that way. I change mine every year and it never looks like that after 1 season.

Ok, that's what I figured, I'm sure that stuff had at least a couple seasons on it.

Definetly more than one season. Like stated, change at the end of every season and be good to go.
