    That’s a very strange Leak, if it was a person I would say you have ringworm, Are you sure it’s coming from your bike?

    Lol! Agreed. I didn’t think it came from the bike either, so I moved it and let it sit in a brand new spot over the weekend and that’s what she left me.

    Wow that is strange, try greasing the swing arm to see if it pushes out any water....That is if you have the nipple fitting?

    I had a friend who used to sneak into his buddies garage and use the oil can to just put a couple drops under his bike. Drove him nuts to find out where it was leaking. He finally told him what he was doing. But can’t help you with your situation.

    Is the gas tank full? The vent tube drops out in that area.

    Drain plug? It's a circle so that's all I got.

    I'd move it to a spot where you can get down there and see what lines up with the leak.

    old fashion T/S tip... if ya know roughly where it's comin' from... douse the area with a puff of talcum powder... see where the area turns dark/wet.

    Here is what sticks out to me....I've highlighted it. The last bit is clearly a FU(K (lots of space) U. Maybe I am looking too hard at this part of the first image?

    I ain't no cop and watched too many 1970's Mavericks but that looks like a forensic enhanced jizz stain. Sorry, just sayin'!

    maybe the shift lever internal o ring leak? Since it's not on the cover I am not sure it would be the filter bypass line. But it could possibly be dripping down from there. I would check the lever o ring 1st if possible. i have seen those leak on Vics before.

    Pretty sure it does

    I'll check on that o-ring when I get home from work. Sounds like the most plausible situation.
