Front Brake Master Cylinder Leaking

I have a 2011 1198SP. The other day I got to work and noticed that I had a few drops of brake fluid on my intake cover. I did a search on the forum and didn't really find much as far as a solution. Has anyone experienced this? Any recommendations?

Replace it. If it is leaking from the crush washers on the line then replace the crush washers and bleed the clutch.

Umm. Why is he bleeding the clutch after doing washers
On the brake?

OP

Are you sure it's brake fluid? How can you tell?

Can you see it weeping or from whence it came?

Photos?

The problem continues... went out this weekend and had some more fluid on the duct cover. Im assuming its brake fluid based on the fact that its on the right side cover and has a oily consistency.

I Looked at it closer today after work and it isn't really close to the connection of the line, more like right where the plunger is as its damp in that area.

Had a similar issue on my 1198 awhile back, found it was seeping from a small breather? hole on underside of cylinder near plunger. Didn't seem to be any repair kits available. Found cheaper & better solution than OEM replacement was a Brembo 19RCS.
