Bad Seal question

A fellow rider thinks I may have a bad seal on a 2004 K1200GT. There was a lot of gunk build up on the swing arm and the bottom side of the swing arm. I have no signs of a leak in the garage where I park it.

I just used simple green to decrease the swing arm to see if maybe it was just years of build up. Any suggestions of what I should look for after I ride this weekend to know if i have a problem?

Look around the seam where the transmission bolts on to the clutch housing. Oil there is the clutch O ring seal gone bad.

Best to remove the under belly cover to get a good look around. Clean first like you did. For small leak finding and location, dust around with talcum powder then check if it got oiled up.
