oil leak.....

Just rebuilt from the pistion up so when I seen this I was worried.

After 2 15 minute rides the last 2 days I parked the bike in the garage. About 10 minutes later I notice a couple drops of oil below it.

It appears to be actually coming out of the oil reserve cap, the dipstick, while riding.

This time when I got off I noticed the oil around the dipstick and on the side of that container.

Is it possible it is leaking out of the cipstick cap?

Good call....

I don't remember seeing one on there. Should I drain the oil and make sure it never fell inside if its not there.

Also, is it one of the soft rubber style o rings?

Thanks!
