That looks like a master cylinder (clutch or brake) was leaking for a while and was never addressed.

From a bigger picture, it looks like water is getting in via the clutch master:

Good deal. There's something I'll bet no one carries a spare of. What was the trail fix or did you just take it easy all the way home?

A #16 rod and a set of cables? It kinda sucks that you even have to consider that sort of damage. What were you doing?

Trail fix was remove it. Brandon just managed to jump under it before Charles dived in. Both had 17mm wrenches working as I looked on in disbelief. It was off and we were rolling again in about 10mims due to needing to make camp before sunset.

Wasn't an option to take it easy. Even drove 150 miles home. To be honest you could barely tell it was missing ... The sway bar did double duty as a shock and now needs some TLC.
