oil leak

I've got an oil leak from behind the left radiator I think. Had all the fairings off and can't find it. Smokes while I ride but the exhaust is dry. Any ideas. Front valve cover. Idk????

That's exactly where I just found mine, front valve cover. Right above the header outlet.

Make sure the large ~3/4" ID tube from the crankcase vent is plugged into the front left corner of the airbox. Oil vapor can come out of there and appear to be an oil leak.
