Common Issues - Oil, Camber, Spare Tire

New to forum and happy to be here. I have aw KRX with 38 miles on it now and wanted to share the following and see if you are in agreement and/or have any suggestions.

1. Machine had milky oil from the dealer. Called them brought it back, they opened a warranty claim, changed the oil and said it would be fine. Rode 30 miles in SC this past weekend and now all looks good. Any reason to not forget it and move on?

2. Camber is really negative on all 4 corners. Dealer says this is by design and per spec. I didn't notice and issues on the trail, but wanted your thoughts. Is this another item to forget about.

3. Spare Tire - I ordered a spare, but it is on indefinite back order. I measure my tires and they are 29.5" tall. Everyone else measure that for true height? Anyone figure out another brand tire that would work as a less expensive spare tire/wheel combo?

Thanks and look forward to learning from you all!

Welcome Freeagent1congrats & enjoy
Some thoughts on milky oil window it's been said most new vehicles sit at dealership for long periods get that from humidity that can't be burned off until the motor fully heats long enough
Not sure and haven't noticed negative camber even though I haven't ajusted the pre load up yet our KRX squats the rear Axel's with our heavy tool box and spare
We bought a spare from Rocky Mnt atv tusk rim & 31 " x10 x 15 forgot brand... tire only one same size I could find at the time I like the Carnivore's a lot I'm sure there's better out there 32s- 35s

1. Is condensation built up by short engine run cycles so it should be a none issue.

2. The negative camber is for body roll and tucking the tires under to keep from flipping there is a picture somewhere on facebook shows the KRX next to a Talon both corning hard, it illustrates the side load forces the camber on the KRX is almost at zero and the Talons is positive. Positive condition in corning can make it easier to roll the car over.

3. People have been listing take off tire and wheels on FB.

Also welcome and happy motoring
