Question about 1996 Yamaha GTS 1000
It is probably chain wax that has flung onto the wheels. Wash & dry the bike, then use WD40 sprayed onto a rag to wipe the wheels down. Works wonderfuly!

Place the motorcycle on a suitable lift. THEN remove the engine oil drain plug, fill plug/dipstick and oil filter and drain the oil. THEN remove the transmission drain plug and drain transmission. THEN remove rear wheel, the left muffler, exhaust crossover pipe and crossover pipe clamp bracket from the transmission. THEN remove the 12 fasteners that secure the oil pan to the transmission. BE SURE that the engine oil fill plug/dipstick is removed before attempting to slide the oil pan rearward or the dipstick will be damaged/broken. THEN slide the oil pan rearward to remove it. THEN remove and discard the oil pan gasket and only if necessary the tapered plug. Then do your repairs.
Clean and examine the transmission and the oil pan flanges and if you removed the tapered plug reinstall it using Loctite Pipe Sealant With Teflon 565 (P/N 99818-97) and tighten it to 18- 22 ft-lbs (24.4-29.8 Nm). THEN apply a thin coat of HYLOMAR gasket sealer to the oil pan flange, place a new gasket on the oil pan flange and wait for the sealer to dry to the tacky point. THEN, if the old oil pan fasteners will be reused apply a few drops of Blue Loctite to them (this is not required with new fasteners as they will have a lock patch applied to them at the factory). THEN position the oil pan with the gasket on the bottom of the transmission and loosely install 6 fasteners. THEN verify that the gasket is properly positioned and tighten the 6 oil pan fasteners to 132-156 in-lbs (14.9-17.6 Nm) Start tightening the oil pan fasteners with the first one at the middle right hand side then the opposing one on the left middle side then the one immediately rearward from it and then the one immediately forward of the first one on the right side then the one immediately rearward of the first one on the right side and then the one immediately forward of the number two one on the left side and then the most rearward one on the left side and then the most forward one on the right side and then the most rearward one on the right side and then the most forward one on the left side and then the rear centre one and then the front centre one. THEN wipe any foreign material from the engine and transmission. THEN check clean the drain plugs, replace the drain plug o-rings, install the plugs and tighten to 14-21 ft-lbs (19.0-28.5 Nm). THEN install the exhaust crossover pipe hanger bracket and tighten its fasteners to 84-132 in-lbs (9.5-14.9 Nm). THEN install the exhaust crossover pipe and left muffler. THEN install the rear wheel. THEN add the proper type and amount of transmission and engine oils and oil filter and check the levels cold and THEN run the engine and check for any possible leaks and THEN check the oil levels hot with the vehicle on level ground resting on its jiffy stand.
