Yamaha r6 leak around kick stand

Hi guys , I’m new to the bike world , i recently purchased a used 06 Yamaha r6 i got the spark plugs done and the valves adjusted when i purchased it. It has 24k miles. Recently i have noticed a small puddle in my garage it seems like it’s oil but might be mixed with something else since it doesn’t have the strong oil Odor. This bike is mostly stock other then sprocket , and m4 slip on exhaust . For starters i should remove all the fairings to help investigate anyone have any idea what this might be ? Has something like this been herd of ? Thanks in advanced .

Had drip coming from a similar spot for a couple of weeks but disappeared on its own. Never bothered to trace it down. I use motor oil on the chain so there's a lot of junk around there anyway. It would never drip in my presence. Similar to your experiences, I'd come back after a run to find a a quarter and some change max, sized drip spot beneath the kickstand.

From a search, it looks like some people are pointing at the drive axle oil seal. (drive sprocket attaches to it)

Its right there below your filter. The genesis of the leak looks straight down from the filter. Make sure its hand tight and that the old o ring came off with the old filter.

Check the exploded diagrams for the transmission, in order to locate the drive axle seal... or most other parts like the shift linkage.

Wind is terrible for spreading leaks around. After cleaning things off, see whether the leak can be reproduced by *cafefully* running through all the gears on the stand. (note: keep in mind that most stands claim not to be built for a running bike)

Re: Yamaha r6 leak around kick stand

Guys i cleaned it up and it seems really moist after sitting but Iíve had it sitting for couple days and itís leaking pretty bad itís not like a couple drops but legit a puddle i havenít even started the bike but it is leaning over on the kick stand ( not on the bike stand ) so itís leaning . Is that grommet capable of leaking so much ? Or you think there might be a leak else ware

Temporarily overfill the crankcase a bit, pull the fairings off and record it from a couple of angles for an hour.
