sludge/tar by the kick stand

i have a 04 600rr
11k miles
never down
mods=yoshi exhaust

on the kick stand there is black grease/tar/sludge all over it. there is some on the lower plasitc as well. the black tar/sludge is only on the left side of the bike. the oil is not leaking.

any one have any idea what this is?
can it be anything other than putting to much oil on the chain?

thanks for you help

it's usually chain lube build-up.

definately chain lube and road grime build-up. take your front sprocket cover off and you'll probably get a surprise. might wanna clean it out.
