removed the tanks and skid plate
cleaned all the grunge off it with 2 stroke gas and a parts brush, then detergent followed by water and dried it real good with compressed air then some brakecleaner spray
put the left tank on, dusted it with talc and ran it up to 5,000 rpm for a few minutes
and found it right away

embarrassingly it is dripping from the oil filter cover , what a relief to find it. I must have buggered the Oring ....oooFh
All the other leakeage is ooze this is a steady drip
the ooze ran right down to the cover and threw me off because I suspect the highest leak first and my test was after no cleaning and a 200 mile hi speed , hard to find in all that wet looking grunge
and its all clean under the hood now
from a cloud of dust we race, then into the dust we return, across the finish line
