I'm an idiot, Auto trans oil into sump..
As stated in the title, I'm and idiot. I won't go into to many details about the why, but you can ask..
Today I drained the old engine oil out of my motorcycle. I then accidently poured about a litre of Automatic transmission fluid into the bike before I realised my mistake. I removed the drain plug and drained the fluid for about two hours.
I then topped the bike back up with engine oil. I ran the engine for a few minutes. I viewed the oil through the glass window in the crank case. There seemed to be tiny bubbles in the oil. I was viewing the oil at night with a bright torch. Perhaps the bubbles are normal, but can't be seen in normal daylight conditions, perhaps the oil is contaminated.
I have contacted the manufacturer of the fluid and oil. They are the same manufacturer, and the containers look very similar. I will get back to the forum if they reply
Does anyone have any advice? About the oil I mean, not about reading the label first....
