Hello guys! I'm in the DMV area. I have a '07 zx-6r that is leaking fluid (light green color) only when I start it up and when I rev it pour out more.

I did see a bit of white smoke but not much.

The area did have heavy rain and I had to leave the bike out without a cover. Not sure if that had something to do with it.

Please see attached photos.

The only green fluid is coolant. Either you have a loose connection on a hose or the head gasket is leaking. Check the oil level and condition. If it is milky looking and the level is up, head gasket needs replacement. Also check the coolant tank to see if there are any traces of oil in there.
I would start with the simple stuff first like hose connections and joints. When you rev it the pump spins faster which may be why the leak increases.
