Re: Oil leak from front sprocket
I would start with cleaning up the area so you can actually tell what is going on. I doubt it is coming from the bolt. It is just the lowest point where the oil settles after blowing around all over the place.
Because it is so grubby down there it is hard to tell from that one image if it is the seal on the shift shaft or just lube from the chain. Some people put alot of lube on their chains. Although your chain looks very dry...
Page 5-46 of the workshop manual will help you. Part number 12 is the oil seal. If it is from here it is likely making its way down there over time.
1. CLEAN UP THE WHOLE FRONT SPROCKET AREA FIRST.
2. Spray on some white foot powder or similar.
3. Run the bike just sitting there for a while. See if you get a leak The foot powder should stain and lead you back to where the leak came from.
4. Avoid riding it at first because the air flow from riding blows the oil all over the place and makes it hard to track.
As for the clutch issue. I suspect it is coincidental and subsequently not related. Have you put correct oil in, is the clutch cable adjusted correctly, have you done burnouts or race starts, when was your clutch last serviced?
