johnny,

I'm having an oil leak around the countershaft area also. Did you confirm that you leak was the seal? It's leaking pretty badly, about a quart every 300 miles.

It could be one of two seals from that area, the countershaft seal which can leak as a result of a chain to tight or wear or the clutch slave cylinder pushrods seal which can leak due to an accumaltion of grunge around it under the countershaft sprocket cover.

The only way to find out which is to remove the c/s cover and inspect, not a difficult task but the clutch lever must be tied back against the lever with velcro or wire or a piece of string before removing the slave cylinder. Then it just a matter of a few bolts to check it out.

I don't know. I do know that the manual requires the lever be held prior to removal to prevent issues, exactly what I haven't researched. I would be very cautious and look for more information before you do compress the lever without the system intact though.
