Looks like just oil. Will look into it!

I've put about a 100 miles on it and have been watching the oil like a's still leaking at about the same rate with the right side of the lower frame and skid plate being sprayed pretty good. I was hoping it would work itself out, too, but no such luck! The parts are in at the Kawi I'll pick them up this weekend!
