Blob of grease on the right side of my motor.

Ok this has happened twice since I bought my F800GS in May of 2013. My bike has 13,500 miles and I was riding it pretty hard when I stopped there was a big glob of grease on the right side of the motor it appears to have came from a vent hole below the water pump. I saw a similar blob of grease six months ago and I wiped it off and forgot about it until the new blob appeared. What causes this and do I need to worry. Other than mysterious grease appearances the bike runs great.

Early on in my bikes life, I had some strange barfages out of the waterpump weep hole also. I almost had it replaced under warranty, but it just stopped and has been fine ever since. Now at 24k miles.....

There are threads here about the pump, the weep hole and leaking oil or coolant (either may appear at the weep hole depending on what seal is leaking). Somewhere in those threads I recall reading that sometimes what may appear to be a leak is melted grease put on the pump at the time of installation. Perhaps your weep hole barfed up some grease.

thx guys I'm hoping that is what it is, grease at that location made no sense at all to me.
