Leakin oil from cam chain?

Notice oil coming out very slowly on cam chain adjuster bracket. Does not leak while parked. Maybe gasket is bad?

Probably loose bolts, or gasket leakage.....
Clean around the area after tightening the bolts ans see if the oil wicks past the gasket or bolt heads....

Yes bolts were all tight, I will clean it up and start it up at idle And watch for where it's coming from.

My 1600 leaked a small amount like that when I got it from the original owner. Wasn't bad so I just kept it washed off until I finally did the cam chain adjuster replacement. At that time I noticed that one of the "O" rings was too large and had folded over itself during assembly and was leaking oil. Bike was low mileage when I bought it and had never had anything done except tires and oil changes, so it must have come from the factory that way. I guess someone grabbled the wrong size "O" ring while building the engine. I put the correct size in and no more oil leak.
