Its leaking on left side of motor.In the middle.There seems to be a silver/aluminum round fitting ,is were it's coming from.The motor is all black midnight.From my book it looks like were the pressure relief valve is.Its a 2005 never leaked anything before.

Oil leak

Do you think you might have over filled the oil? Sorry can't help maybe someone will have an idea.

Is it leaking from the bottom of the engine? could be the Low Oil level switch. Only thing on left side other than the side cover.
I can't think of any thing else that could leak oil.
Hope this helps

Left side of motor half way up right behind clutch cables.I removed big cover on left side and traced leak to main gear box just behind were the clutch cables cover is, and just below rear cylinder meets gear box.

Bigun I took a close look at my 1100 today in the area you say is leaking. Looks to be a couple of oil galley plugs, where the factory plugged holes after drilling the oil passages.
Hope this helps.
