Hi,

 

I open the side cover and changed the shift stopper (as a precaution). I put all fluids back including oil.

I started the bike and rode for like 5min. check the oil through the glass door and it is like whitish color. not milky white like i saw on some other pics though.

i don't recall being like that when i drained it.

 

what could it be?

 

thanks

Was it rather 'foamy bubbles' with a whitish tint, if so it could be oil aeration from overfilling.

Are you using motorcycle compatible oil (JASO) and recheck the level/quantity you put in.

Hi, rechecked the pil this morning and it is back to normal color.so I think you are right. I'm using Mobil 1 4T racing oil.
I'll drain it and out less and see. Thanks
