    If there was water/coolant in the oil it would be milky. That may just be the color of the oil you are using.

    Most motorcycle oils have friction additives in them, just keep an eye out when purchasing them

    Its fine,my x does the same thing. Its from condensation that is mixing with any oil that may be in the catch can. I always make sure to drain the catch can before going out for a ride.

    My catch can, when it does accumulate some and I drain it, looks exactly like that, and I run the 10 40 valvoline as well.. Not milky, kind of smells like fuel, thin, has a funky tint to it, For what it's worth
