Could someone share their thoughts on where the leak might be coming from? It doesn't leak much and rarely. I cleaned it up around 500 miles ago and this is what I came to this morning.

Let me know if more details are needed.

That is also the #1 cylinder and any engine oil from crankcase breather will accumulate in the air box there when bike is on the side stand.
If the air cleaner isn't over oiled then consider:
Overfilled engine oil? Sustained high rpm running over long periods of time? Excessive crankcase pressure from ring blow by?

Thank you. I will check my oil level. I did remember that the guy I bought it from changed the oil himself, so I wouldn't be surprised if he overfilled it.

Ed's right but just the colour of the oil looks very much like filter oil to me.It is very easy to over-oil you only need a mist and that is enough.:)

Plus, keep in mind that is the low side of the bike when parked on the stand....

All fluids in your air box will collect there.

I also first thought Air Filter Oil.
