After about 100 miles into our ride today, my bike started to spit grease out from down near the front sprocket. There were strands of grease slung all over my hugger and undertail. Anyone know where this could be coming from? Or what can cause this? I ride a 2002 GSXR1000.

Chain lube build up mixed with dirt, hair, grass or whatever else the chains comes in contact with. What type of lube are you using?

I clean the chain with WD-40, then put chain wax on it.

That's your problem. Clean it with WD40 and leave it alone. Chain waxes are the last thing I'd ever put on my chains with the exception on non-O-ring chains on dirtbikes. In my experience my chains have lasted 3-4 times longer, when using WD40 to keep it clean and doing nothing else, than when I used chain wax. A while back in my "Journal" http://www.dcsportbikes.net/modules....e=story&uid=28 I wrote my thoughts on chain lubing.

i concur w/ travis.
bring it out and we'll pull the sprocket cover and clean it to make sure.
it "might" be you output shaft seal starting to go.
plus i have nothing to do and am bored out of my mind!
