Milky looking oil in glass, white pieces in coolant overflow..

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, new to this forum and new to bikes, thanks for any help in advance. just purchased a 2019 mt07 with 3000kms.

I have two things I need help with:

1. My oil looks milky in the oil glass and thick, and when I dumped some in a pan, it looked cloudy and thick An slightly milky.

2. In my overflow there is white flakes at the bottom quite a lot infact but no oily residue.

My concerns are above, and this is a fairly new bike any help would be greatly appreciated.


It has apparently had its first service Recently

If that's with the engine warm I'd say that's got too much oil in it for one.

Milky oil is usually an indicator of water in it. If it's been recently serviced I would be taking it back to the garage that did the service.

What's the oil level like when it's warm though?
