most of the oil seepage from a berg is from either the cam cover (sealant only), valve covers (small oval gasket), water pump weep hole (internal seal / o ring) or the breather tube (weather cracking). at this stage of the game, i'd be surprised if you could ever get it seepage free.
if it bothers you, just wash it a lot.
Thanks from tourist

The clutch covers don't have enough bolts, I found that some 3 Bond grey, or white, sealant sorted that with the gasket.

Not unknown to have a cracked crankcase from an overtightened swingarm pivot bolt that will weep until welded up.

The front LHS of the rocker cover seems to be the worst bit there, a 'bandaid' of 3 Bond Grey over it fixed mine.

My 98 FE501 is oil tight. I suspect that it wasn't really part of the design/maunfacture brief for a 'race' bike back then.

Fun things!

Thanks from tourist
