Oil Leak

Has anyone experienced any oil leaks. I have what seems like a leak which looks like it is coming from where the chain cover is bolted to the engine. I am still breaking in the bike. Only 650Kms on it so far.

Take the countershaft sprocket cover off (2 bolts) and inspect. It could be a leak at the countershaft seal. Check if the oil comes from behind the sprocket... At any rate, it should be warranty covered.
