who would of thought

So on my way home today I noticed what I thought was oil pooling on the case near the oil fill cap. It looked like it was coming out from where the cases split. Well with just over 300 miles on it I flipped my lid and took off to the dealer. Much to surprise Kawasaki uses A Bunch of some type of grease during assembly on every past that does not need grease. Well it dropped down on the cases, melted and looked like oil. How dumb I felt but after probably owning 30 bikes I have never seen this.
