Default Mysterious Oil Leak?





Hi guys, I have a 2009 KLX250S. I came home from work today and noticed a couple drops of fresh oil under my bike. I tracked it up the left side cover to the top of the engine case behind the cylinder.

Has as anyone else experienced this kind of leak? Any idea where it’s coming from? I assume the black metal piping is for lubrication, but it appears it’s leaking near the “cross” juncture of that black piping.
