hard to tell but if oil was used to lube the chain one would expect to see a lot of grime in the areas shown in your pictures. other possible causes of a leak in that area could be the clutch slave leaking hydraulic fluid. the seal on the shaft behind the sprocket is another obvious one to check. my guess is you are looking at old grease/oil from the chain diluted with clutch fluid, meaning the clutch slave had reached the end of its live expectancy. a "soft" clutch lever might be a clue to this. clean the area really good and see if the oil leak returns after a ride.

good luck.

I cleaned up the area and it looks to be leaking from behind whatever the bronzeish looted part is in the left in picture 2

Clean the whole area including chain and sprockets with kerosene. Ride for a couple days and check back for a leak

that's the clutch slave. it also looks like it is the original one. these things on our bikes are notorious for leaking. take it off and inspect. (the three bolts you see are all you have to loosen. don't operate the hand lever once the slave is off the bike). if its wet on the backside you have a leak in the slave. not worth trying to repair. replace it with an oberon or other aftermarket slave. (i have found oberon to be the most reliable but there are many good options out there).

if you intend to do the work yourself be sure to read up on bleeding the clutch. you don't want any air in the line or you'll have issues. lots of good info on the forum just do a search. quite easy work but you'll need a few this and do the install in a specific sequence.

good luck.
