just bought a new Victory Vision 2008, when I made my first oil change I notice the oil was brown. I had only ridden the bike from the dealership, about 2 miles. Will there be any potential problems with the bike?I have change the oil 3 times within the last five hundred miles and gotten all of the old oil out. Any other suggestions would help.
The bike sat at the dealer ship for a feww months. The would just pull it out of the garage and park it on the lot. The victory dealership in ark said that that would cause the crank case sweat and the foul oil might ruin one of the transmission bearings.

Its not really what you ride, but that you ride!
I see many car and bike dealerships start engines just to move 'em out and back every day. I can not think of anything worse you can do to an engine short of deliberate sabotage. The crankcase and exhaust system gets warm then cools, causing condensation to accumulate and do its nasty work. That's why its never a good idea to start up an engine and run it for a few minutes during winter hibernation. It takes a ride/drive of about a half hour to cook off the water and that's prolly why your bike had some in the oil, mcpapadoc.

So does the oil look normal now.
Did you change filter with each oil change.
Its a shame you didn't take it to dealer right away so they could see the oil. Now you would have a hard time proving there was water in oil if you ever had a problem.
