Oil leak on a new '03 XR70?

We have only rode this thing about 5 hours total, and sitting out on the trailer, I noticed it is leaking oil from the bottom. It is not coming from the tube hanging down, but from somewhere on the case...any ideas? I tightened the bolt down there (likely the drain plug), but it seems that it might be coming from the side cover, what is that?

Waiting for the service manual to come in the mail, going to talk to the dealer tomorrow... :)

That sucks. However, if the bike is new than it should be covered under warranty. You may want to take it to the dealer before you mess with it so the dealer will not be able to blame you for the problem...not that a dealer would try that or anything!


Have the cases bottomed on anything, they might could have gotten cracked.
