That's automatic transmission fluid right there. Not meant for manual transmissions, and not meant for motorcycles. Well if I was in your shoes I'd put some Honda Hp transmission oil in there and go for a ride. Then change it again and go for anther ride. Get it off your clutch plates ASAP or you will ruin them.

Automatic tranny oil work perfectly in dirtbike tranny. They both contain the same part( gears, bearing, clutch). Never put manual tranny oil in your dirtbike tranny, manual tranny oil have additive for the synchro, dirt bike doesnt have synchro. Dont make the mistake, I ran atf automatic transmision oil in my 5 past dirtbike without any issue, no cltuch problem, no worn bearing and gear. It's cheap and work fine

AHHH I got ya. Well u might still have gotten some water in there somehow. Change it, go for a ride and see if it still looks like that. Are u losing coolant? Or have u ride through deep water?

Yes that's correct transmission oil is great for sure. Transmission fluid for cars is not good to use in a bike transmission. Based on the pink color I thought it was automatic transmission fluid (ATF). I don't use bel rays I had no idea it was pink. I would never use ATF in any bike. ATF is not an oil but a mixture of various chemical compounds containing a large number of additives. Those additives can cause pitting in the friction plates. Clutch plates on these Honda bikes are not the same thing as clutch plates in a car. Yes ATF "works" but there are many oils that will work better. That bel rays is 80w gear oil so I bet it works great
