So I'm losing a solid 3-4 drops every time I stop somewhere. If oil is thinned, I can lose as much as a two-quarter sized puddle! I check the oil level EVERY time before I start the bike and it regularly sits just under the top line! When it drips, it leaves gold drops in the snow so I know it's fresh oil. Currently, my oil filter cover is leaking and my base gasket is leaking. My question is, could the gasket between the two pieces of crankcase be leaking?? It appears to come from there as it is dripping in the dead center of the motor, but I cannot dismiss it as the base gasket dripping. Is this common for this gasket between the crankcase pieces to leak? Bike is an '06 with ~6000 miles. I cannot find the replacement gasket to save my life if this is the issue.
