This is especially noticable if the bike has been sitting a while and if the weather's cool. It is water vapor condensation and it is perfectly normal. If you take the bike for a long ride and get it warm the milkiness will go away. Some people install shutoff valves to their oil coolers so the bike gets hotter in cool weather, or fashion oil covers to reduce airflow, but most people just go for a long ride instead.

Ticking & white smoke after replaced intake gasket


Sounds like coolant getting into the combustion chamber. Potential causes in order of significance: Intake manifold gasket (might not have been done right), Head gasket(s), cracked cylinder head, or, cracked engine block. Check the oil. If it looks like chocolate milk it means the coolant and oil are mixing

Sounds like a blown head gasket. check the oil if it looks like chocolate milk you defiantly have blown gasket. The white smoke is because antifreeze is getting into the oil.

White smoke on exhaust


As a general rule, white smoke can mean coolant leaking into the combustion cylinder(s). Check your coolant level, see if it's still full, or if it's discolored (like oil is mixing into the water). Check the color of the oil, see if it looks like chocolate milk. If you're losing coolant, I'd say it's possible a head gasket, cracked/warped head, etc.

Make sure it really is white smoke -- if it's "blue smoke", it can simply be burning oil -- valve guides, piston rings. Or it was way overfilled with oil and the excess pressure is forcing the oil past the rings.

A compression test would be a good idea, as would a trip to a mechanic to check it out.

Sometimes water vapor gets in through the vent in the crankcase and as the motor heats the only way to go is up!!!!! I wouldn't worry about it since you checked the oil and it looked fine. If it was a bad gasket or a craked head your bike would have a bad miss and the oil in the crankcase wouold look like milk...................
