    Is it loosing coolant? and is the water in the gear oil? if the oil mix smells like coolant it must be coolant, providing You are using coolant.

    Has this had a water pump kit fitted correctly (seal)?

    If the coolant is dropping the only 2 places it can get in to the gear box is from the water pump and the O ring in the clutch cover It gets the coolant from the bottom of the .cly

    There is water or some fluid mixed with the oil and that is usually a pretty bad sign. If the bike was ridden in a lot of water (deep puddles, creeks, etc.) though it could be that an oil change will get you back up and running. This bike isn't a water cooled 4 stroker is it?

Hey m8,,u either need a head gasket replacing,, and if u dont no any history onit, and any work that has been done to it by the normal jack of all trades,, sounds like the seal has been damaged on the water pump,, or just have been used a lot and created dirt and gravel to nacker up the pump seal,,

Oil gone creamy

You got water in your oil. Drain and flush. If it happens again, you have a crack somewhere that is let water get in.

I have water leaking into the gear box is it the o rings (4) ? The bike is a 2000 250 sx

Is the oil in your engine emulsified? (creamy substance in the oil or around the oil filler) If so then it would seem as if you may have a leaking head gasket, or cylinder base gasket.

Hi i bought a honda cbr 600rr 03 the bike is running great one day shortly after i bought i took it for a spin and i opened the oil cap i noticed the oil had turned a creamy colour when i asked around...

if the bike is water cooled, try to check all the gaskets separating water and oil passages. creamy colored oil means water and oil mixing.

My 1986 Suzuki rm 125 dirt bike spark plug was wet when i took it out, it is water cooled and i'm wondering if the spark plug is suppose to be wet.

The spark plug will be wet from un-burnt fuel. If your water is getting into the engine, your oil will be milky white.

Oil is creamy but coolent is fine dosent smoke has been sitting in garden for nearly a year?

Creamy oil means there is water/moisture in it
Maybe from a cracked head, or a bad head gasket

Maybe from condensation but don't run it until you find out Moisture can destroy your bearings

Drain the oil, change the filter, refill the crankcase with diesel, start and run for 1 MINUTE, drain oil, change filter, refill with the proper oil, run for 5 minutes, don't ride it just run it slightly above idle
IF your oil is still milky you have a big problem

I'm getting a "creamy" oil coming out of the overflow

when oil becomes creamy or foamy it is a sighn that you are getting moisture in it. you must have water leaking into your oil. you should fix the problem soon because your oil will not work properly with an excess if moisture in it.
