Oil leak below header pipes.

I hope one of you guys can help me out. I noticed a oil spray on the front of the engine and radiator hoses. I removed body work and noticed oil seeping out of a small hole underneath where the exhaust header connects to the cylinder head.

Hi Riccao, I moved your post and put it under a new heading. Welcome to the forum, can you give us some more info. as in what bike are you referring too. Another member has recently had the same or similar issue on his Brutale, this might be the same thing. http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=75409

The hole beneath the header pipe is a drain for the spark plug well.....valve cover seal around spark plug opening is leaking.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
