KLR 650 output shaft leak

Hello fellow adventure riders. I have a 2005 KLR650 and noticed this weekend that I have a few oil leaks. Oil appears to leaking from the output shaft / counter balance shaft - basically the shaft that the motor sprocket attaches to. I have read that this is a somewhat common problem on these bikes and am wondering if anyone out there has experienced the same issue and how long the problem can exist before it absolutley needs to be remedied. The reason I ask is it doesnt appear to be leaking substantially (2-4) drips a night. Next weekend I'm taking the bike on a 1,200 mile trip and would rather wait to fix until after the trip being that i'd have to order the parts and wouldnt recieve them until the night before i leave. On the flip side, the last thing I need is to be 600 miles from home and have seal/gasket blow out? If someone has had a similar experience i'd like to hear your thoughts.
