I did an oil change today on my 09 arctic cat 500 4x4 manual today. After filling with 3.5 quarts of oil I see no oil in the sight glass checked for leaks none..when I crank it is see oil and water spinning around in the sight glass. I drained the oil witch had no water in it and replaced it with new oil didn't change anything. Before i messed with changing the oil earlier i stood the atv up on its rear tires to access the little oil pan with the drain plug because I stripped the drain plug threads by going the wrong way with wrench (******* I know )...So i changed that out droped it and filled with oil.Could that have anything to do with it and what should I do. Atv runs great just dont llike that milky look in the sight glass.

Did you also change the filter and see if the oil cooler is passing oil? This could be starving the top end for oil and/or keeping bad oil up top if it cannot flow.
