I will inspect the two gaskets as mentioned above. Just hoping it wasnt anything major.

I discovered oil seeping out from the clutch cover seal. Drained the oil; cleaned the mating surfaces; put a small amount of RTV along the bottom section; bolted the cover back in place; waited about 6 hours and filled with the requisit amount of oil.
All is good now...not a hint of leaking.
Clean up the bottom really good with carb/brake cleaner, etc. Try sealing the bottom section of the clutch cover with a small amount of RTV or something similar. Let it dry and then add oil to the tranny.
Check for leakage after a neighborhood test ride...no dirt...see if that fixes it.

How difficult is it to replace this gasket? Im new to 2stroke engines so I dont have a lot of knowledge but not afraid to get in there and get my hands dirty and learn. If its too much for me I may take it in to my local KTM dealer.

I had 3 leaks when I bought the bike (used), finally fixed them all, engine is dry and pretty!
