I just pulled the side cover and tried to look. from under it there is no wet spot. Bottom of the engine is dry. It comes from center/left for sure. now-correct level or even a little low on oil. 3 days ago drove 55 miles went inside for an hour , came out and dry as I pulled away. 55 miles home and dry when I put it in garage. Yesterday I backed out and oil on ground. went 5 miles, parked for half hour, came out and dry as I rode away. stopped for gas and dry when I drove away. This morning in garage dry,,, started engine and backing up and oil on the ground. If it's that seal there should be a wet spot where it's coming out, but I can't see it. that's why I asked if anyone has ever seen this. There is a leak--weird leak--but a leak.
