Angry Hmmm.... WTF?

So i only had my bike for 3-4 weeks right? when i got it, it had already been laid down by the previous owner, but still works fine, just got a lil road rash... so i noticed that it was leaking from the crank cover cap, nothing too serious just a slo leak at high rpms. i knew it was leaking cuz everytime i got off after a long run i had lil drops of oil on my shoe... sounds like somethin as simple as a o ring or seal right? that what i figured too so i went to yamaha and got the o ring put on but 3 days later its back to the abnormal drip drip so WTF, can any body help me out wit this lil problem, i dont wanna take it to a motorcycle mechanic and get workd over

Sometimes when the bike is laid down, the gasket breaks the seal. It can leak the same day or take a while. It can be as simple as replacing the gasket.

If the cover is all scatched up, it possible that it is leaking thruogh a small crack.
Did you look at the inside surface?
Try cleaning the cover really good, like with brake cleaner, and then ride for a few minutes, keep repeating until you see where the oil is seeping.

is itleaking out of the oil fill hole? when you say cap and oring. if so make sure the oring and the mating surface of the case are dry. then put the cap on. dont overtighten as not to squish the oring out one side where it may let oil escape past the o ring. hope that makes sense.

Busted gasket, leaking from internal hairline crack, or whoever owned it before you may not have re-assembled correctly while trying to repair it. If you don't have the tools or know how to do it yourself, don't risk it, take it to a shop...

I would pull off the bodywork and take a closer inspection. Looks like it may be coming from the cover gasket.

that pic isnt great. and as im not familiar with the r6 enough to know where and what that is. i saw take talcom powder and lightly dust the case and leak area with a fine layer of powder and theleak will be more obvious as to where it is actually leaking from. oil will travel before it drips sometimes. do that and then see if it becomes more obvious. maybe you pinched the oring when you installed the new one.
