fluid on final drive

my friend and I during 2 recent trips to higher altitudes 7500 -10,000 feet showed excessive oil drips on our final drives.....almost identical patterns....both bikes are in perfect condition, mine 40K, his 24K......no issues at all except this leaky look......the trips were a month apart.....never happened before , only on the higher altitude trips....any theory's?

Re: fluid on final drive

somewhat common on bikes taken to higher altitudes. Do a search on altitude + leak.
