oil leak

Hi All
I appear to have oil on the lower part of the battery box, and oil over the wire and connection under the battery box, cant seam to see where it is coming from, but the oil is clean and amber in colour, and seams to be running down the wires.
Anybody had a similar problem.
(the bike is a 749s on a 56 plate)

Back in the day,I owned a 999 and 999S,Red Seb had a 749S,and Marko owned a 749 plus a 999S.None of us had an oil leak like that.So,bit of a guess,.....base gasket,rocker cover?
A little oil can go a long way,....its not been overfilled and coming out of the breather system?
Just had a thought,it could be a leaky oil cooler or union.(Early 749/999's were recalled for faulty oil coolers.)
