Well moved my atv to my house today from the farm want to do the slide mod and some other crap to it. Noticed oil is leaking in the same place it was a month ago. Dealer fixed problem once and it took 2 weeks that i dont want to loose again. I havent tore anything apart yet just wanting some other opinions on what may be the problem. Iam voting on the inspection plate o-ring again and can i put tome gasket sealer on that cap if it is? here are the picts. Thank you all in advance.

id say you hit the nail on the head, if the bolts are overtightend it bows the cover allowing oil to seep from the middle of the cover.

I would pull the cover plate off and then in a circular motion sand the cover flat and smooth on a piece of sandpaper, replace the o-ring gasket and maybe use a little non hardening gasket compound. Torque it down to specs and hope for the best.
