Well, I pulled my motorcycle out of winter storage to change the oil, and everything looked fine. I started it up after a whole winter of sitting in the garage, and after a few minutes I shut it down and looked at the sight glass and saw some whispy white material just above the oil...Yikes! Well, I looked at the radiator overflow bottle and everything is between the lines as it should be.
I drained the oil (no milky oil...actually very clear and clean), I replaced the filter, refilled the oil with Rottella T6, and still some milky whisps in the sight glass....so I hoped on, and took it down the street for a 10 minute ride, temp rose to right level and remained there. When I got back, I let the bike sit the appropriate time, looked at the sight glass and everything looked fine, no more milky stuff. WHAT GIVES?
Do I have to worry...what should I look for? Cheers, and thanks for any suggestions or comments. Brad in Duluth
