2004 Brutale oil mess on front of motor?

My 2004 Brutale has some oil spray mid way on the front of the motor (seems freshest there but spreads), has been that way for a few years. 14,000mi, the oil level is always good, never need to add any between oil changes so it can't be much oil coming out but it is hard to clean that area. Anyone know if there's a common cause for this? It's hard to see where it's coming from exactly and very hard to clean.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Adrian

Thumbs up leaker?

Adrian....
You said "midway" on the motor......top to bottom?
probably the top O-ring/ bolt on the oil drain tube from the head down
page G06 of the parts manual...
you should check the bolts on the oil cooler adapter, the lines and the filter adapter too

Could be rocker cover gasket also leaking down one of the spark plug relief holes if your model bike has them.
