Hi everyone!

Noticed a little bit of an oil leak a few weeks after a service. Then started to get pretty bad so I brought it in, seemed like it was coming from the oil filter. Shop said it may have been a cut line when they were servicing? Brought it in last week they replaced oil filter and said it should be good to go. I have waited a couple of days but it's still leaking but very slowly now. Same spot, kickstand is all soaked (still) and some drops coming off of the oil filter. Wasn't sure if this is new or if it's left over from original leak and just now coming down. Anyone know what it could be ? If it still leaks tomorrow I think I'm going to bring it in again.

Is it coming from above, eg the rocker cover?

Check your oil pressure sending unit. It should be located somewhere near the oil filter. It could be a bit loose and just need snugging up. I've had one actually fail and leak oil out where the wire plugs in. At any rate, wash all that oil residue off so you can watch for the source of the oil leak.
