this bike is from up north in the Yukon, driven down wet muddy road to work every day (diamond driller). Purchased new in June & used for two or three months only.
Could this simply be water from the road getting in to the oil somehow?
Cold and damp have anything to do with it. (The oil has never been changed so original from break-in).
Head Gasket? If so is this a big job $$$ wise (I am not a mechanic).
Any other causes?
Should I just change the oil and see if it goes milky again?
Thanks for your input guys!

I'd change the oil and monitor the coolant level (mark it with a pen on the overflow). If the level drops (comparisons must be made at same engine temp, ideally cold) you have a problem. If the oil isn't milky a after the next change dont worry about it. You are due for an oil change anyway.

By the way, I can't believe the performance, sheer power of this bike! I have owned a lot of dirt bikes and many street. This thing pulls like my Roadstar!
Up on the back wheel in 1st, 2nd and 3rd, (haven't had the chance to try 4th. Haven't even done the free mods yet, just the exhaust has been done.
