Just went riding my yzf426 for the first time outside (I live in ny) and after riding noticed grease coming out from around rear hub on the sprocket side. Whats the problem and how do I fix it. I just bought the bike about 2 months ago and am not sure if this is an issue that is a major problem or some thing easy. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Should be just excess grease from the axle/wheel bearings. check to see if the seal dust cap is in place &/or pull the rear wheel to find the source.

Probably put to much grease on the axle when you reinstalled the rear wheel.
