I have seen that before on another ZX 6. Is that a common problem? Oil running out between the gas tank and frame gap?

When I talked to M.U they said its very common on the zx's. Not coming from there just running down below the headers and spraying a lil on my fairing.

You may be able to see where it's coming from once you take the tank off?

Make sure you have your little oil catch bottle. The little clear one that catches stuff from the air box. Are you getting oil on the left side of you bike?
