Having the same problem, same bolt since it went into the shop to put in Barnett clutch plates- also seems to be oil leaking out the top- i'm wondering if it's overfill too, have to go check the levels ( with some help as always- groan) and the air filter
I am wondering if i should have had a new gasket also at the time the plates were changed. Will try this fix in the meantime- where can i get this stuff in Canada, any idea?
thanks!

There's lots of places online that ships to Canada. The OP had his leak on the right side( as you're sitting on it. Yours seems to be on the other. If you had the clutch replaced, sounds like they used the old gasket instead of a new one. Could be they just didn't get the bolts torqued correctly.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

If it started leaking after they had it apart, make them honor their work. Those bolts are torqued in inch- pounds and can break fairly easily.
