oil leak after layed bike on laft side HELP

Went down on a corner , sand in road. Only damage to 06zx10r was cracked stator cover .got a new one on order , put jb weld on for now but still getting oil leak from somewhere , I'm mechanically inclined , bit I'm lost. , not coming from any over flow tubes , need ideas or past experieances , could it be the gasket , or hidden crack around bolt hole , I know u can't tell withou looking just wondering if anyone else had the same prob . Seems to be oil dripping under stator cover area , also my throttle stuck on me a couple times , bike went down on opposite side any suggestions. , thanks for the help.

maybe lower crankcase or belly pan? Some pics would help...

It may not be leaking when the bike is setting still BUT once it's running there's a chance it's pushing oil out of the stator cover but as tasos mentioned, pics might help track down the culpret.

Take a risk, and you may lose. Never risk, and you will always lose.

Jb weld is also not the be all end all to stop leaks. Especially if there is any residue at all from where you applied it.
