Looking at it again, I noticed that it's really only on the front part of the frame, and the front of the motor. It does look like oil, and it's got a sandpaper feel to it when you wipe it off on your finger. I took a picture but it didn't come out very well. Beginning of last season I cleaned it, and it's back now so I have no idea what it is. Is it possible it's blow-by ?

a picture would really help , i dont understand the word front frame because the ninja has no front frame, the only front part is where the steering attached/forks , and where the engine and radiator mounts which is high up the engine is a stressed member meaning the engine itself is a frame

Here is a valve cover leak

also note the oil line where it can leak

i had a leaking valve cover when i got this bike , it would leak in the front and left side , the leak would end up as droplets below the radiator hose where the radiator connects to that bent steel tube , it is clean oil and it was never rough and has no gritty feeling
