weird grease and shifting problem

Hey guys i was under my bike today and noticed some random green grease right below my shifter and trans is this normal? also i have not been having smooth up shifts i ignored it for awhile now but it doesn't feel right, hard to explain but its not as smooth as when you down shift it feels like it catches or doesn't go into gear right away 1 N and 2 feel fine just going past that.

couple drops of coolant mixed with grease and road grime maybe?

What colour is your chain lube? Is it similar to the colour of the grease that you're seeing?

Re: Shifting, how old is your engine oil? and are all the shift linkages lubed?

Can you take a picture from further back, so we can see more than just the bolt and greasy area?
I'm thinking that is coolant, and its coming from the coolant drain bolt or the water pump itself.

looking at this post https://www.600rr.net/vb/showthread.php?t=89348 it may be my drain bolt was loose at one point im going to go over the bolts and tighten them up wipe it and go from there, engine oil is a month old full synthetic. Also by lubing the shift linkages do you mean clutch cable and such?

lube the knuckle joints of the shift linkage and any moving parts on the rearset that has anything to do with the shift linkage.

Are you running OEM rearset or aftermarket?

Often Aftermarket doesn't have a closed bearing and need regular lubing on the moving parts otherwise that may not move as freely as it should be.
