This weekend I was taking a break from riding and noticed my oil overflow had leaked out a white spot of oil. My bike occasionally will drip a small spot of oil but it has never been white. I only had 15min on the oil. It did not continue through out the day.

Does any one know what happened and if it is a problem?

That's from water mixing in the oil, but may only be atmospheric moisture in the breather. If the oil on the dip stick looks normal, you're probably OK.

Thanks, I checked the dip stick regularly everything seemed normal.

I will keep an eye on it.
