So I was servicing the blue bike getting it ready for spring and I noticed a pile of oil/sludge/dirt in with my countershaft sprocket. Digging around I noticed about 6 possible leak points:
1. Countershaft Sprocket Seal
2. Clutch Actuator Seal
3. Shift Shaft Seal
4. Side Cover Gasket
5. Gear Position Sensor
6. Ignition Pickup Sensor
Anyone have any suggestions for helping me figure out which one is the culprit?

Could just be build up from chain lube, I get the build up all the time, but worse if I use an oil based chain lube. I would just clean it up and keep an eye on it.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I think that might be it. I cleaned it up really well with some brake cleaner. I will keep an eye on it. I need to clean the chain too.
