If it's the stator cover that's leaking, it can be a right pain in the hole to get it to stop. Took me three attempts and the better part of two years. Mine ended up leaking from the grommet in two places, where it meets the block/cover, and venturi pulled oil up through the holes where the wires come through. When you put a new gasket on, cover both sides with a good sealer, then slide the cover on, the magnets from the stator will hold it in place and wait at least 15 min before you torque the bolts in place. If you go straight to torquing you will push all the sealant out of where you want it to be. Let the sealant set up a bit first.
The sooner you introduce motorcycles into your children's lives, the less likely they'll have money for drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers.
