Question about 2000 Yamaha XJ 900 S Diversion
Being an air cooled bike, odd to have white oil. Generally points to there being water in the oil. Truns white with the extreme mixing process inside the rotating engine. I can only suggest that if the bike is only used for short trips, that it has a buildup of condensation in the sump that is not "boiled" off by getting to full operating tempeture.
I suggest draining the oil straight away, and replacing it. Go for a 50 k ride, and check it again, if it still has some contaqmination, change the oil again. It may take 2 changes to clear the problem.
Taking the machine for a decent run every week to get it to full operating temp will help to eliminate the condensation issue.
