Do you use synthetic oil? if your using standard oil you might be cooking it if its getting really hot.

That is a common thing. Your always going to have some fine gunk like that on the little lips of the cases. What is it? Fine particles of clutch fiber mostly, broken down oil and so on. What you want to look for in that gunk is shiny silver slivers. The gunk is like a tar pit to trap anything floating around in the cases. Now you may have a small amout of slivers from normal wear, but realy need to look for slightly larger slivers that may be telling you that a problem is in here, check it out.
