Needing an oil change shouldn't make it leak oil. Too much oil in it might. Pull the farings and look around.

i guess ill try looking when i change the oil...... ok so i know its leaking so does that mean i have to fix a gasket or sometthing or would it fix itself if it just had to much oil since it isnt coming from the oil input hole or the plug at the bottom.... just trying to get ready to pay the shop or not

if your asking that then u do not need to be working on your own bike!!! bring it to someone who knows what their doing, u paid to much for it to mess it up due to negligence.

motorcycles unlimited does a big inspection on the bike as well when they do a oil change, just mention to them what its doing and they can take a look at that specific concern.
