I have been noticing oil coming out of this hole and along the seam of the engine. The only thing it could be is a bad seal or?

My F5 snopro leaks around the exhaust donut - causes the engine compartment to be covered in used oil and yes in there mag.side engine area too.
But my sled has under 150 miles on it, I think most of the problem was from the pre-mix (which caked everything inside) and I switched over to Torco SSO oil and seems to be spraying alot less now only a very fine mist,verses big black messy goo and gets better as I run the engine.
The A/C synthetic APV sucks - wether A/C likes to hear that or not!

I too had what appeareed to be an oil leak. I talked to my dealer, and he said it was coming from the exhaust donut area, due to the fact that my first tankful was 100:1 premix, along with the injected oil for the engine break-in. I have not noticed any problems since.
