    I don't think it is anything to worry about. There is no evidence of a leak from any joint above or below this spill. Unless you drilled a hole in the head there is nothing there that can leak so it is spill from a previous maintenance or something like that.

  3. Look at the centre of the darkest spot, I see a weep hole which comes from the sparkplug well. You're just getting some drainage out from the well, nothing to worry about.
    Clean it off if it offends you, and then go riding. :finger:
