Please bear with me I'm still a newbie at this.

After washing down the bike and checking it out i noticed milky white oil on the rotor nut plug. I suppose water can enter as its only a plastic screw but not sure how oil got there as i was under the impression it was sealed off from the engine oil. please tell me if I'm wrong. No white oil on dipstick, i even drained a bit of oil off and it was clean.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

The flywheel area is wet, as in it shares oil with the rest of the motor.

Check your coolant level, drain and refill (or flush as necessary) the oil and keep a close eye on it to see if you see the water getting back into the oil over use.....

It could also be your impeller shaft seals
