Oil leak

Hi all..
I'm having an issue with my 08 raptor 700r.
After every ride I have some oil residue on the external side on top of my clutch cover,but can't figure out where it's coming from! The amount of oil is minimal. I always double check the oil level in the reservoir tank and it's all ok...has this happened to anyone else before and knows how to sort this out?
This happens only when I'm out riding...if I run it at home, there is no oil leak at all!

Thanks for you help

Check the condition of the o-ring on the crankcase oil fill plug on top of the clutch cover.

There are several areas that it could come from. You’re going to need to degrease it real well and attempt to find the source. Likely areas include crankcase fill plug, oil filter housing, head oil supply line, base gasket.
