Has the bike been sitting for an extended length of time in the cold? I saw this on my '01... changed the oil and after a few rides it was gone. I don't know about the coolant tho......

Yes, it could be some condensation that took place in the sump, because this is usually a sign of water and oil that is mixed. The fact that you see it in the coolant as well, might indicate that you could have a leaking head gasket or a crack in the head or crankcase. Suggest you take it to a dealer or respectable mechanic to check it out! Did you buy secondhand?

yes i bought bike used, i only put about 200 miles on it, i'm showing leakage both ways so unfortunatly i belive the headgasket has failed, it is milky not bubbly.
