hopefully someone here can pinpoint it...

the two tubes on the left/bottom of the bike are leaking...a dark thick almost grease-like substance, definately not oil

was my understanding that the oil is 100% sealed, no clue what it might be

no wheelies so i dunno, any ideas? ill try to get pics tomorrow

there should be 3 tubes there, one with a bottle on the end, one tube is for water/oil in the air box and yes oil can come up there doing wheelies and such....another is coolent overflow which will piss out ocne your overflow box gets fileld possibly dfrom doing burnouts and such...and the other i think is water in the gas cap if i remember right...or maybe it's air pressure to the tank somthing liek tat i knw it goes to the gas tank...

well prop up the tank and follow the tube up and see where it goes...maybe its not leaking from there maybe grease flung up onto the tube and is just on the bottom of it...cosue grease should not come from any tube...

Is the stuff coming out of the tubes or is it just on the tip and sides of the tube? Sometimes the chain lube/wax splatters onto the tubes.
