Gear Position or Counter Shaft Seal Oil Leak

So I just picked up a 07 Daytona 675 and got a safety check on the bike. Most things were straight forward except they said
“Large amount of oil around gear position switch and counter shaft deal.”
When I did research on the gear switch it looks like plug and play. But I’m unsure about the counter shaft seal. Is this something I should dive into?

If it was my bike and it was seeping i would definitely dive into it. "if it aint right, its wrong" . by safety check do you mean you had a mechanic go over the bike post purchase? just trying to gauge your experience with wrenching on bikes. I say first a foremost get out your favorite degreaser clean that area up and see at what rate is this thing leaking.

Agreed. A large amount of oil around the countershaft could just mean the previous owner lubed his chain with motor oil. Clean it up, confirm there IS a problem, then start worrying about how to replace the sprocket seal without splitting the cases (it CAN be done!).

Ditto. My 690 appeared to be leaking from the countershaft but it was just chain lube built up.
