I just did an oil change. My bike only has 200 miles on it and it had 59 miles on it when it was delivered from the dealer. I've never seen nastier oil. Is this normal?
I shit you not...I just read this...and now I have a headache.In my oponion, that oil that you attached its picture in the Aluminum fold is too dirty, you said your bike had 200miles, lets say 500 miles, 1000miles, the oil is so dirty; The black color of the oil is very normal but the dirt at the bottom of the container is just not right... I mean if you turn the bike on in a tunnel of dust for 200 miles, that might gives you simlar oil but before you even change your oil, the engine noise changes.
Bottom line, I think the oil that you took picture -if the Aluminum fold was empty and clean- is not normal for a fresh oil after 200 milage. To give you an idea i did see the oil after 5000 miles and it was not that much dust in the bottom. The dirt of the oil depends on the area that the bike was on but since you had 200 miles only and you just bought the bike brand new (usually a brand new bike has more respect and care for it's owner at first) I don't think you ride your bike in dirty enviroment. There is one thing that bothers me and i will tell it to you:
Unfortanetly most dealerships (not just Kawasaki) use cheap oil and gas for their properties for sale. I saw before that some dealership used a cleaned used oil. I even saw it in here USA, i don't mention the dealership name but i just tell you that they are very famous and they are in LA. I belive if the dealership you bought the bike from put used oil (they cleaned it already but it still is used and itis not like a new oil), this oil that you get at the oil change can be normal.
