Question White oil and no turnover

I have a big problem I have a 2001 tl1000s I have usesed it throughout this past winter with no problem all of a sudden the bike would not turn over first i thought it was the battery that wasent it then I thought the starter was shot I dont think that was it I went to do a complete electrical search for the problem I opened the airbox to check the filter and found white oil I drained it completly imediatly and it all came out like milk What can I use to clean the rest of that crap out of the engine and could that have been preventing my bike from starting? If there is a leak somewhere wheres the first place I should look thanks guys.

Not sure I understand the detail here. Are you saying you had a milky substance in your oil pan? If so, you have a coolant leak into your oil lines and that's a gasket job.

Here's a link that's automotive in nature but gives some good advice if my presumption is correct.

+1 on the coolant leak / gasket failure. Only thing I know of that changes oil that colour.

Dumb question of the day: He's saying he found it in the airbox/filter (if I am reading it right). Would it get into there?

Yeah, I was having a hard time understanding that too. I know oil has shown up in people's airbox but I honestly can't recall the cause. I would presume the same mechanism is at work here.

Also, I fear that scott's right, the engine may have seized up

There are multiple hoses going from the crank case to the air box, they are part of the PCV system. Its not unnussual to get a little bit of oil thrown into the air box on deceleration.
But I'm with everyone else here, the fact that it is in the air box is the least of your problems. That engine is toast.

Did you have antifreeze or just water in the radiator?

Yep, sounds like you blew the freeze plugs or have a serious leak of anti-freeze. But make sure it's not some residue. We may be getting you all worried for nothing.
