Blackstone Oil Analysis Results
10/31/19 3:54 PM

The comments from the Blackstone analyst is that the out of family levels of “metals” is normal for a “young” engine. I expected nothing but a normal range of materials in the oil so now I’ll have to worry about this until the next test at 15000 miles, and at my slacker ride miles/yr of ~2000 rate I’m doomed to worry for another 2-3 yrs.

It would be nice to see a few other reports on these lumps at similar mileage and some of the bikes with 50-60K would be nice to see that data also. I wonder how many samples of the 1442 engine, or this Motul 300V oil Blackstone has, I guess If I asked, they would tell me. Anyway, data is below.

Blackstone labs has a very easy process, I don’t recall the exact cost but its about $30. Go online and order, they send you the kit to collect the sample and then you just drop it in the USPS box. This took less than 2 weeks from when I sent the sample to when I receive the data

I will have to try this on both the bikes. I saw a very strange tan spot in the drain pan from the busa. The bike had sat overnight and I opened the plug to let the last few ounces run out. Then a week or so later I got around to emptying the drain pan. IDK if it was a moth or something that fell in there or if that was sediment that came out of the bike. Seemed to float like a plume of smoke from the bottom to the top of the oil.

Anyway----I don't really care!! These engines are going to get used up some day and I'll run them as long and hard as I can tim they wear out or blow up. I'm looking forward to getting new motors in them someday or else retiring them to the Rook Racing motorcycle museum. They both still pull as hard as I can handle. It would be interesting to get them on a dyno.
