Leaky Clutch Cover.. I think
Ok, so i noticed that i was getting some buildup on my lower fairings, a little nastier looking than the normal road grime. Upon touching the muck i realize it is almost certainly oil, joy!... So after pulling the lower and mid fairings off the clutch side i see the engine is pretty much covered in a light film of oil and road crap starting about 3/4 of the way up the clutch cover and running back as far as minor traces on the swingarm. After cleaning it all off fairly well i took it for a short ride fairings still off and afterward found some oil hanging off the clutch cover mounting screws. Is there anything i should check before goin all out and pulling the cover and reapplying sealant? I will get pics up shortly. Any help is appreciated.
EDIT: My bike is an 03 600rr, 4500 miles on gauges, has been downed on clutch side. I believe it was a high side but not for sure. Changed oil 3 weeks back, honda HP3 oil.
