I got a 2015 Versys last week, had a lot of fun so far. It's my first real bike though and I'm kinda worked up about some goop around my front sprocket. Not sure if it's chain lube buildup or possibly a leak in the countershaft seal? Have to get posts 1 and 2 before I can get into technical forum and beg for help from those that actually know what they're doing.

Thanks,
Alex

Thanks for the positive thoughts! I asked all the other riders I work with and though their bikes are belt driven they figured that was the most likely source too. I hit up the local small engine mechanic after and he recommended I shoot some WD40 into the sprocket area and clean up with a small sponge brush. I did that yesterday, so I'll try to put a few dozen miles on it over the next week and check it out again. If all goes well I'll get to take it on an extended trip for Labor Day weekend!

Not sure what your roads are like. If they are a combination of mostly (90%)pavement, some broken pavement and some dirt your best choice is adv. tires like the Metzeler Tourance Next or Pirelli Scorpion 2. Adv. tour tires are basically sport tour tires with a more aggressive tread to hook up on bad surfaces better. They still provide great on pavement grip. If it's pavement only then sport tour tires are better. If it is a ~80/20 mix of pavement/dirt then you need an off road tire and there are options for that too.
