Do you always pull the engine to work on the forks?

Why would you NOT change the oil(and top and bottom slider bushings) if you are servicing your forks?

Well, I can say that oil looks quite normal for fork oil. Fork oil is the nastiest looking stuff there is. Gets dirty quickly.

Yes, new oil is the only choice.
