2002 yamaha fazer 1000 creamy oil

just found creamy oil on the oil filler cap and can see it in the window but nothing on the water filler cap and looks like no water has been lost so this maybe why the fan keeps coming on ???

Has the oil level increased?

Does the cooling fan go off when put in first gear?

When was the last time the bike had a good run out?

You no answer in your last post!

The cooling fan coming on when the bike has been recently started from cold is not a problem.  Mine does and it goes off as soon as first gear is selected.

Milky oil would suggest water ingress but, as Jaffa eluded, it may be a build up of condensation due to little use or short journeys.  Change the oil to be safe, give the bike a decent run and check again.  You don't often get problems with the Fazer Thou as Jaffa and I know well.

Short journeys in cold weather. That's the cause. Take it for a good old rag around to get it properly hot.

Once again big thank you all :smile .

I took my bike to a excellent motorcycle garage called dave clarks in Oxford and they have confirmed it is a build up condensation :biggrin: .
and I do understand about the condensation in bikes but it was the amount that shocked me . Anyway once again thank you for replying and I am now going to take the long way round to work and back .
