Kingword, with the pictures you provided it's very difficult to see the areas you're talking about. Try sending some larger versions and let's see what response you get. Just a suggestion.

Much better pictures. Do you have an owners manual or repair manual or have access to one? If you're not real familiar with the bike, they're worth their weight in gold. Also Annie is very familiar with roadies, and I'm sure she'll response sometime today.

Had a similar problem with my 05 last season. The leaking which wasn't much was from the final drive pully shaft seal. I brought it in to a local shop and surprise the pully nut was loose.
From what I've read its a common problem with the road star. Replaced the seal and re-torqued the nut and its been fine since.
