foam in oil

Question for you.

After oil/filter change, and after a short ride, later started bike and shut off after short warm up. Oil in sight guage was foaming. Warmed up a little longer and seemed to be better. Is this normal? Thanks for your input.

Re: foam in oil

foamy oil usually means water in the oil. I don't what else would cause oil to foam. (?)

Re: foam in oil

No more problems so far. Possibly was just air in system. Had to loosen the oil filter when first started to get light to go out. primed filter but not enough, tried to keep the mess down and made a bigger mess. Live and learn, I guess.
