Help please - R6 - White/creamy substance in engine...

I got my R6 out today to start her up, check her over, and admire. Turned the bike off, and took the filler cap off the engine to look inside, and i saw a creamy white substance inside! it did not smell pleasant either... so now I'm panicking.
I checked the dipstick and there is none on it, just clean oil.
I took a couple of pictures.

It sounds fine too.

I cant tell much from the pictures, but Ive seen similar on the bottom of oil caps. Dont know if we ever figured out what it was? I think we just assumed condensation.

Check your coolant level.

Oil + coolant = creamy white goop.

Don't rule out Ryan though he is sneaky.

LIke dinkforce has said, oil + coolant = milky looking oil which probably means a blown head gasket

Re: Help please - R6 - White/creamy substance in engine...

I'm still voting semen.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE
