Oil Leak

Have any of you guys had any oil leaks from your 1098's? I noticed yesterday a fair bit of oil had leaked from what looks like might be the gasket at the top of the front cylinder! I haven't taken any fairing off to investigate yet.
I have my first service in a few days so I'll have it looked at then and let you all know where it was coming from.

I read it can leak if there is TOO MUCH oil in the engine, another members bike had 675ml oil too much and it all came out via the air box which is near the top cylinder.

I'd say let the dealer be the judge.

Yep,rocker cover where it goes over the cam bearing carrier on the belt side of the head.
Easy fix with a smear of 3 bond.

intermittant oil leak ?

How's this for weird - don't use the 1098S in a week and it leaks oil. Use it more regularly and it doesn't.

What the heck is that all about?
