- Replacement Oil Pan Question -

Awhile back I bought a new oem pan for my Gen 1. But I noticed it was painted inside, and the finish was not smooth in some areas. It's like raised cracks in the paint, but not peeling:



I have a lot tied up in my motor, and I am not sure whether I should trust it? I am kind of worried about the paint flaking off and getting in the strainer. Anyone seen this before, have any thoughts?

if its an abnormal finish, i agree strip it. the air craft stripper seems to work best. (blueish gel)

I'm not sure about the black paint, but when ever I change my oil, I always strain it through a paint strainer. The last time, I found pink paint flakes in the strainer and in the bottom of my drain pan. when I first saw it, it had oil on it and the pink chips w\ oil on them looked like brass or copper in color. turned out kawasaki uses pink marking pens to identify completed operations. (see pic). very concerning to say the least..

not worth worring about and definitely not worth a motor.

Did you call the place you got it from and have them get intouch with Kawasaki ?

I have a billet 2" Adams also, but some have suggested it might run dry with 35 seconds WOT....especially with extended revs or high volume pump gear.





Would like to hear of anyone else who has used one in an LSR application...

Shane, I ordered a new pan from Kawasaki, a couple years ago. When it come in, it look just like that. I had him send it back. And the knew one that come in look just like the first one. it's not in the paint. It's actually in the aluminum. When they cast it. You could take a sandpaper cartridge "Tootsie Roll" and knock the rough stuff down.
