Small leak after dropping the niner in my driveway

This afternoon I was moving my bike into my garage. There were two cars parked in my driveway closer together than usual but I thought I still had room to turn around between them. Long story short in turning around I clipped my car with my left frame slider and dropped the bike onto its right side. A few minor scrapes but I couldnt see anything more than superficial damage, but i went and checked on the bike after a few hours and noticed a small leak under the bike. It looks like there are three rubber tubes just below and behind behind the right foot peg and the leak seems to be coming from the middle longest tube.

My question is how much trouble am I in because of this? Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks all!

More than likely it's just coolant from the overflow tank. Mine did the same thing when I dropped it. I lost a little bit of fluid when I picked the bike back up, but once those hoses you mentioned drained, no more fluid was lost. Just keep an eye on it and you will be fine.

Most likely it's overflow from the gas tank, but it all depends on what fluid is actually leaking.

Gas? Coolant? Oil? Brake fluid?

It looks like it has a kind of greenish tint to it, so I imagine it would just be the coolant. Thanks for the quick responses guys!

It could be a little blinker fluid. You should check the levels in the front ones.
