My roxor has only 1100 miles on it and I just recently noticed this. I was thinking maybe since it's street legal and I drive it to work that it's not used to the higher speeds etc. It's got to be gear oil?

Looks like grease. I would smell it just to be safe. If it was gear lube. You probably would get the stench going down the road. Mine has been my daily driver for 10000 miles and have had no leaks.

i Don’t think it’s gonna be gear oil If I remember right the diffs are sealed at the pumpkin and there’s no oil in the tubes. So for it to be oil it has to leak at the pumpkin and migrate to the end of the tube. Check your diff fluid level. if it’s full its most likely grease. Of course the only sure fire way to be sure is to pull the drum and look inside. I’m thinking it’s grease from the wheel bearing there. Aside from the mess I’d just live with it if it’s grease.

Cause grease is essentially oil that is suspended in a carrier base such as lithium. The carrier base keeps the oil on the part so it can lubricate.

Looking to buy
Have you pumped the rear grease zerks till it comes the weep hole on top? To me it looks like a bit of grease seeping out the weep hole and running down, cause it got warm enough too. It won't be gear oil.
