I'm no mechanic wither, but that looks like the inner bearing seal is coming out. As tight as things are normally there, I'd check the axle nut and make sure that's not coming loose.Looks like the bushing(??) is pulling out of the wheel assembly it sticks out at the top about 1/16" and not at the bottom.
Sorry for my lack of terminology fellas I am not much of a mechanic..
I am sorry, but it's time to find a new dealer. That is the most boneheaded thing he could say. Wipe the grease off and see if more comes out...WTF?! There is a seal there for a reason, grease should not magically be appearing. I would call another dealer if I were you. Just my 2 cents.The service department at my dealer called this morning. From the pics I sent, he says everything looks normal. Wipe the grease off and go ride and check to see if more grease appears. If it does, call back..
Also they noted on my account that I called about a cv issue and if one comes up they will fix it.
I'm not exactly relaxed but, I will run it and see if more grease comes out.
Coaching my boys football team for the next few days. Won't get her out of the garage until Friday or Saturday.
I would have to agree. Any dealer worth anything would tell you to bring it in and they'll take a look at it. Sounds like to me he doesn't seem too concerned about keeping you happy now that you've spent money on a new machine.I am sorry, but it's time to find a new dealer.

This is tricky though, as more may not come out until damage has been done- i.e. overheated and smoked bearing. Judging solely by the picture provided, it does not appear the grease could have come from anywhere else. Let's think about this, there are not grease points up there, and those are sealed bearings. That quantity of grease would not have come from assembly, I don't buy that for a second. I would be genuinely concerned here. However, in the event that it does fail, at least the OP has done his part, and contacted the dealer, who has it documented. I just would hate to see it come to that is all. I would be calling a second dealer...That's the thing, not sure if grease is actually leaking out or it was there from assembly. Clean it off and see if more comes out or not.
