Milky paste in oil fliier neck?

6 posts in this topic

I was just checking the oil on my 01 wr426 and noticed a bit of milky paste in the oil filler neck, I changed the oil and it was clean, just wondering if this might just be condensation. It has been getting cold at night and then warming up during the day. I use the bike to commute to work about 50 miles a day. Any ideas?

I vote condensation. We have had chilly nights and warm days with a good bit of humidity (for high desert) lately. I noticed a little milk in the top of my filler cap.

Normal condensation. I see your in an area with rain and lots of humidity. Temp differecnes will aso create moisture, ie cold engine cases and heat generated by starting the engine will bring out the moisture also. Usually its all converted to steam when the engine reaches normal operating temp and its pushed out the breather system. If not ran enough, it will just condense in the crankcase. So its basically "normal" :)

I don't think its a case of not riding enough, I ride 75 miles per day, everyday during the week, then at least 50 to 100 on the weekend

But I do agree with the condensation, it has been quite cold in the morning, and the heat of the engine should create this problem, I'm not too worried since the oil hasn't been milky
