Hi all, I have a 2021 890R that seems to have a fluid leak coming from the front of the motor. It drips down the skid plate and forms a small puddle near the kick stand in the morning. Its not oil and doesn't taste/look like coolant. I'm going to investigate the cause this afteroon. Rode it 250 miles after noticing is without any issue. Anyone else have a similar issue?

What, other than oil or coolant, would it be? Likely coolant from a leaky clamp up front, pretty common.

I had a similar issue with my 790 adventure with the oil type fluid gathering on the skid plate and a few drops on the floor. It was determined to be the countershaft seal and luckily covered by warranty. Apparently this is a common problem with these bikes though KTM wont admit it or issue a recall.
