Yep. The seals are bad. The shaft may have grooves cut on it from the seals aswell. If its not leaking real bad its okay to ride. Just check your coolant level during the day.

Your welcome. I didn't know it was a super moto bike. Pretty cool. I definitely wouldn't recommend dripping coolant on asphalt. Thats how Henry got hurt.

I just had the same thing happen on my 400 supermoto as well. Changing the seals isn't too bad a job, but a bit time consuming and a little bit of a PITA. just make sure you get the case seal as well as the oil/water seals so that you dont end up trading one leak for another.
