Looks like there's the beginnings of a small leak on the rear cylinder too, definitely from the gasket.

Maybe I'll wash it after I find and fix the oil leak.

I bet it's the oil pressure switch, it sits in between the cylinder heads on the left side.

Yes, some bike breaker not far from where I live was selling parts of it on eBay. Cops done fook all and I've got some parts back via my insurance company, but the prick has butchered a lot of the stuff, knowing he was going to loose them. :mad
