Moblie 1 vs Redline

My wife rode her 14 SGS home and I picked my 15 RGS two weeks later. 5 oil changes later she has 19k running Moblie 1 and inside her primary is yellow. I've been using Redline and not only is my oil clear (not like honey aka Moblie 1) my primary looks like new after 18k.

How do I know what our primaries look like inside? We both had SE compensator upgrades and I was there to inspect the innards.

We are on the 2nd flush using Castro conventional (inexpensive) and she is probably going back to Amsoil.

She refuses to be like me when she grows up, so Amsoil it is.

May be something with your wife's bike, my engine was built up at 17k and looked brand new using Mobil One, I recently went back to a stock clutch set up, (Screaming Eagle had my hand screaming), everything in the primary still looks new. Though I will admit I put Redline in the last time I changed and it seems to shift just a tad bit smoother.

The crankcase oil looks the same honey..........its the crankcase we are flushing with conventional. She does ride 7 miles to work and back 5 days a week and I have entertained that short distance 40 times a month may have some responsibility.

I have a SE diaphragm with a Aim PP on this '15 hydraulic and I don't know anything else on this bike, but IMO there is nothing like a cable.

In the end nothing like frequent oil changes

Redline has mad my Harley Klunk quieter and smoother. Never used Mobile One.

I use Redline 20-60 year round in the motor and Redline in the trans and primary , unless in a pinch I will use Valvoline VR1 FS , because I can get it at the auto parts .. I have run Mobil 1 and did until I got a bad Used Oil Analysis , honey color sounds like contamination , is it a milky color ? Could be water ..
My EVO tour glides , if I did lots of short trips , like going back and forth to work in the winter , and no more , my trans would get moisture in it in short order ..

Try to take her on some longer rides.... My guess is moisture!!! It developes in just about everything and you are not riding long enough to get rid of that moisture. I have seen this a couple of times b4.
