Like Belkins said, your pictures (even the new ones) aren't any help. I've studied your photos and I still can't see any oil because there are too many shiny surfaces in that area and I can't tell if it's just the natural sheen of the parts or if they're coated in oil.

Oil leaks aren't difficult. If it's a gasket, go ask the parts guy at the dealer for a new one and pick up some silicone gasket maker while you're at it. If it's coming from a plug, replace the washer and torque adequately. That timing cover isn't bathed in oil. You can take it off without making a big mess (it'll drip a bit though).

yes, hard to tell from the pics but.....

After being rebuilt from the crash maybe when the side case was
replaced they just used the old gasket and it's just leaking?

Hopefully something like the case is not cracked and leaking.

If it was leaking within a 5 mile ride, they knew about it
before selling it.
