Can be a lot of things, but you didnt give information about where it is, what kind of oil it is. If your chain case is leaking I'm sure hoping your not using 2 stroke oil in it. Over flow line would do it to.

Possibly the seal behind the drive axle brg in chain case. If the brg is on its way out itll chew up the seal and leak, or if the seal just gets old n dry itll start leaking and itll leak out the drive axle side of the case under your sled.

my 650 was leaking out of the chain case. had pinched the gasket when reinstalling the cover. only figured it out by removing the cover and seeing the gasket was pinched. try filling it after cleaning it and see if it leaks. mine was only leaking after getting up to running temp tho.

Should only cost like $5 or $10 at most for oem parts. You can prob match the seal at napa for $1.
