Hi CBR 500 Community,

I have a 2017 CBR500R. I just recently noticed a drop of oil on floor after parking my bike overnight. After taking a closer look I saw oil accumulating in the following areas.



It is a very slow leak as there was only one drop on the ground and build up starting to form in this general area. Does anyone have any idea as to what the cause for this could be? I'd like to get on top of it before it becomes a serious issue.

Thanks in advance!

I can't tell from your picture, but you are sure it's not chain lube that has got thrown of the chain at the front sprocket and is just running down the cases and dripping off at the bottom? The engine gets very hot so even thick chain oil gets quite runny when it lands on the engine cases and heats up!! Chain oil is usually the cause of most leaks like this in that location!! Just a suggestion.
