Chain grease.
If you take the side cover off you'll be greeted with even more built up poop around the front sprocket shroud.

If you service the bike yourself its a good time to clean that area. After you drop the oil and tip it into a container you can use the drop pan to catch the gloop when you hit it with degreaser. Just be super careful not to get any degreaser at all on the chain. esp the orings.

That's what it looks like after a good clean.
I've got the nut and sensor off in that shot. You don't need to remove the nut but it's alot easier to get in there with the sensor out the way.

Yup. Degreaser kills chains.
I only ever use soft watered down detergent and a brush on the chain side plates.
Chain doesn't need to be super clean all the time. Just don't let it go dry.
