After a usual fall ride yesterday, I noticed a bit of milky colored goop leaking from the breather tube on my 07 YZ450. I did encounter a few puddles and mud holes along the trail ride and was thinking maybe this is all it was.
After I got home and washed the bike and parked it in the garage this morning I noticed a quarter sized puddle of oil on the ground. I haven't changed oil yet, but it is due now after this ride. There were no problems after the two previous rides. Anyone have an idea on this.
I forgot to mention I did clean air filter on the ride before this one. It just rained so not much dust so on Saturdays ride I just rode with the same filter. I didn't answer have this issue on the ride before. However I did top off the radiator before this last ride. Could it be coolant that boiled and mixed with crankcase gasses to form this milky goop?
