leak from oil pan..

When i ride, whether it's ten minutes or two hours.. after i park the bike i get no more then three drops of clean oil under my bike.. i pulled the lower cowl.. and it's coming from the rear left bolt on the oil pan.. gave a quick quarter turn to see if loose. still happening. not enough oil coming out to lower levels, but still annoying the hell out of me.

could it be the bolt? a gasket? gettin opinions before i work on it. I don't trust the local shops here.. they dropped my friends rr just trying to change a damn fuse!!! and then wouldn't pay to repaint.. fawwwk that..

any advice would be awesome..

has there been any work done to it,
reason i ask is the oil may be coming from somewhere esle and just dripping from the oil pan bolt.

if it really is the oil pan, just take it off, regasket and rebolt

if the bolt wasn't loose & you don't want to drop the pan then just take the bolt out, put a cork or rubber washer on it & tighten it up.
That should solve it.
