how many miles ? could be some condensation build up along with all the machining oils/etc. thats in the motor when new. it should clean up after your 500-600 mile oil change. ive never had a problem on my bikes (new or used) but it happens. :wink:

Here is a copy n paste from Gadgets site:

"Help, my oil sight glass is looking milky and I can't check my oil."

The Fix: Go for a ride (oh darn) This fogging of the oil sight glass window is especially common when weather turns cold among riders who travel short distances. The engine (oil) doesn't get fully up to temperature so the sight glass fogs (just like when you and the S.O. produce all that heat in the back seat on a chilly night). Once fogged it may take a couple of nice long rides to drive the moisture out from between the double paned glass.
