White smoke not from exhaust

So I was taking off my tank plastic cover and noticed white smoke coming from under neath the tank, I lifted the tank and noticed the smoke even more but can not for the life of my figure out where it coming from. I can only see the white smoke if I step back from bike. It doesn't seem to smell like anything particular (coolant, oil.. Etc)

I didn't just do a coolant flush a few days ago.

Any ideas???

Oil on headers?

Ride carefully - You are invisible.

I'd rather be next to a rider that can maintain a controlled wheelie than a muppet on their phone.

Can even be chain lube that gets on the headers, or you can ride through some oil/water mix and it gets on the headers and burns off. Keep an eye on your oil and coolant level (take the rad cap off, don't just look at the bottle) if it doesn't just go away on its own.
