need better pics... next to the kickstand sensor is 2 rubber drain tubes that should stick below the sensor... also water slowly drips outta front sprocket cover which is located right above sensor...mine still get the damp tips even after almost 16k miles...

It's not coming from the two hoses. I'm guessing from the front sprocket cover?? Why is that. It's a clear liquid btw. No taste or smell. I'll try to get some better pics

If im recalling correctly there is a piece of foam behind the cover for noise damping, maybe water finally dripped out from washing the bike,  my radiator still drips water for a good few miles after a wash from what was trapped in the fins, maybe rode on some damp roads, condensation from moring dew dripping??? gotta be water since nothing on the FZ-07 has clear tastless fluid like water... thats all I can think off

Taste test is in order! Honestly, I wouldn't worry too much about it if it's not gear oil, coolant or brake fluid. If you were around any water source (sprinklers , puddles, etc.) I would chalk it up to trapped water.
 
Edit:  Forgot to add gas to the list...cuz that's no good too.

Love this comment! I could eat things that would make a Billy goat puke so I always test taste an unidentified liquid on my z71 or bike

"Battery acid doesn't taste that bad, really. If it wasn't for the hole it burns through the tongue, I'd have it."
