oil

I have just taken some oil out of the bottom of my leg, it is a clearish light green but it has some black streaks in it should these black streaks be there?
thanks,

That's just dirt from normal use, your oil must be quite new otherwise it would be almost completly black.

If your gear oil turns black you're cooking it and you need to change it more often.
