What is your coolant level at? What does the spark plug look like? Did you make sure the bike was warm for a while before you check? When was the oil changed last?

2011 Orange shane -

It's just condensation. You haven't ridden it enough to burn off the water that condenses in the crankcase, so it fogs up the site glass.

Take it out for an hour's ride and I'd bet it will clear up.

You're due for an oil change, anyway.

That happen to my bike when I change the oil the first time.
As soon as I drained the oil...I thought after I filled it it would clear...nope.
I then thought after I warmed the oil on a ride that would fix it...nope.
Lasted about three weeks. I took it to the shop and after spending the night in the shop it was fine? They told we that this happen sometimes but they don,t know why, they just replace the site glass.

1. What ever the dealership said it was.

2. It looks like a spark plug, I checked it myself.

3. Oil changed last Friday. First 200 mile service. Over $400.00, luckily I have a service agreement for the next three years.
