Oil leak...help

Alright i recently picked this bike up its a 2011 ktm 990 adv r. It has about 12400 miles on it. It looks like there is a small leak just behind the countershaft sprocket. is this common and how hard will it be to fix? i havent pulled anything off the bike yet it just is where it looks like its coming from.

It could be the countershaft seal. Not to big of a job, However before you tear into it check the shifter position switch, Its under the CS and is held on by two bolts and uses an Oring. I recently thought for sure my CS seal was gone, then after I pulled the sprocket off that area was dry as a bone. Turned out to be the O ring mentioned. Good luck

awesome...probably wont get a chance until next week to check it unfortunately but its a very minor leak...maybe 4-5 drops over a 24 hour period. i assume its safe to ride as long as i keep close track of the oil level?

Should be fine. Likely the neutral/gear position switch, like Cyclops says. . . this came up a half dozen pages ago on the "what did you do to your ktm today" thread, I think the o-ring size should be there, there's one in the harbor freight metric o-ring set that works, or you can order/buy the correct size one from someplace like Mcmaster-carr.
