I am assuming you mean a 2" diamter spot? It doesn't take but a few drops to create a large spot. Since this took 2 weeks to tget that way, I would say that the leak is not that severe. Check your level and make sure it's not low.

As far as repair, you'll need to find out where it's leaking from to determine if it's something minor that you can fix. If it's just a engine case cover or bottom pan, then perhaps you might tackle that with a new gasket. However, if it's at that center seem of the motor and requires you to split the case, you'll probably want to avoid that. Find out where it's coming from and post up your findings...

Yep. That's the first thing I would do. It's cheap and may fix your problem. Also, clean your engine. I can't tell if that's just road grime at the top of the pic or oil.

Looks more like a pan gasket to me, any oil leak on a bike is not good at all.

No, you don't. I've been riding street bikes for 15 years and have done about 30 oil changes on my bikes through the years and have never replaced a crush washer. I also have never had an oil leak at the drain point. Just make sure when you change your oil you clean the drain plug and crush washer w/ B-12, WD-40, Brake Cleaner, etc. (to get rid of any leak causing debris or grime) and touch your finger to some new oil and use your finger to apply some new oil to the surfaces of the crush washer and re-install. Just like you do with the rubber gasket on an oil filter.

It looks like it's coming from further up and running down; clutch pushrod seal or countershat seal.
