White guck coming out of breather tube on my 426!

This milky white sludge falls out of it when I park the bike, and it continues to drip for a while. I imagine it does the same when I ride.

As far as I know you need not worry. I have had the same after being through water the breather pipe will drip oil and it will be white due to the water. it is a good idea to do the airbox thing if you go through loads of water. I believe what can happen is if you stall in the water then water gets sucked up the breather pipe

Change your oil and filter . 2001 426 with filter add 1.69 qt.;2002 426 with filter gets 1.48 qt.
after you fill it to proper level, it should stop dripping the milk

just after i test rode my 400 there was 3 or 4 small drips of white gunk, and i was just about to pay for the bike and i nearly shit. i grew up understanding white oil meant head gasket or similar sorts of issues.
now i'm used to just another querky yamaha thing.
ride on fellow gunkmeister
