black residue or grease on the end of the exhausts

Hi guys,

I just realised that on my GL 1100 i'm having like black oil or grease on the end of the exhaust tips, but they are easily wiped of.

But after every ride I notice they are there again? Any ideas?

Are you burning through an appreciable amount of oil?

Most common cause of this is leaky valve seals. They get old and hard.
