Can't tell much from that picture.

Could be excess or even sling from runny chain lube.
Thanks from huckjai

I thought it might be from the chain lube as well. I'll try to check it out tonight when I get home. Cheers!

That's what I'm thinking. It looks like the spillage from an oil change that wasn't completely wiped off.

Clean the spot with WD-40 and see if it reoccurs.
Might help to figure out where it came from.

Hey guys, it does look like it's coming from the chain guard up front. I've cleaned the area off and will try a different lube and see if the leak comes back. Thanks!

I get that, too. What's it smell like when it's hot?
