Well, that was a bit unexpected. I went to drain the final drive fluid and the oil that came out was red. Is this oil from the factory? The bike only had 5900 miles on it when I bought it. I'm at 17k now and finally getting around to the final drive and coolant this year.

No, not standard Bmw. But it could be Omega oil and that is waaaaaaaay better.
Beg to differ. BMW C-SAF-XO 75-90 is red. I have a full quart of it on the shelf. It is what the BMW dealer used when they replaced the final drive outer seal on my bike.

Interesting. Well, I bought full synthetic 75w-90 to refill with. Can't wait to finish up the maintenance so I can ride it!

K1200s. Just drained and refilled my final drive fluid this spring. It was red also. Refilled with recommended Castrol 75w90 which had a normal color.
