Hoping for some help with an extremely slight coolant leak I seem to have from the left crank cover area on my 2020 CRF250. I have checked all areas above and around this part and it seems to be leaking ever so slightly right from the bottom of the cover. Should I just be looking to replace the gasket for the cover or what else is in behind there? I've never been in to that side of the bike before so not sure what is in behind the cover so hoping for some advice on what I may be looking at to fix it.

The small amount of coolant im the picture took a week to get to that point so it's extremely slow but would still like to address it now.

Thanks in advance!

The stator is behind that cover and there shouldn't be any coolant weeping from it. If anything, oil.

Maybe I’m blind, but I don’t see anything. And yeah no reason for coolant to be on that side of the motor. Maybe check your radiator hoses and make sure the hose clamps
are tight.

Don't ever let facts get in the way of a great story

I figured that just wasn't sure if there were any collant passages behind there but still doesn't make any sense. Will maybe just pull the cover and see what I see

Just at the end of the weld there is a tiny amount of blue coolant but it is very hard to see to be fair. I had an initial look and feel and everything seems ok but I need to go over it a bit morr thoroughly but wanted to see if I was missing anything obvious first of all
