Oil leak from clutch cover?

Track bike leaking oil from the clutch cover. I've never seen this before.

Source of leak is the clutch lever that the clutch cable connects to.

Do I need a new clutch cover or can I replace some seal or something inside the lever mechanism that the cable connects to?

Picture of Leak!

Picture of my bike just for fun:

My guess is the clutch cover seal. That's where I would check first.

There is a seal in that spot that can/does go bad so it's a cheap fix; should be a bushing as well but look at the fiche to be sure. However I'd also take a good look at the cover in that area as I've seen other bikes develop cracks with can lead to the leaks; there is a lot of pressure at that area when you pull the clutch in. If the bike has had an impact in that area it can cause issues as well.
