Noticed a small oil leak from the block. When the engine warms up, it will leak right from the corner. It appears that it will blow out and suck back in. It will leak more when the breather in the airbox is covered and opened... It is on clutch side above the oil lines. Anyone else have this problem?

Not sure what to do. Complete tear down or external fix. Leak is about a droplet every minute. Not a whole lot, but enough to notice.

Anyone know what a dealership would charge? Or what a solution to this problem would be.

Thanks in advance! More photos if needed.

Just a guess but it might be from a worn gasket.

Any resolution to this problem? I just bought an 09 with 2800 miles on it and it has a leak in the exact same spot. The oil level is about an inch over the full mark however...going to change that as well. Any input would be appreciated :)

make sure the crank case breather isn't plugged if its ok id replace the base gasket between the cylinder and the block
