2012 1199s w/abs: oil leak from push rod

2012 1199s abs. 13k miles

So after doing my oil change, new crush washer, new filter and o rings, new tires, coolant flush, new brake and clutch fluid....I have an oil leak. Here's what I did...
I did the above.. But I did a chain and sprocket service. I took the slave off to get the rubber guard/collector off to gain
Access to the front sprocket. I went to town cleaning. I used clp to clean. I then got as much off as I could. Then I used my chain lube/wax.
Put bike together...went to ride. Traction control kicked in and the rear was squiirly. Noticed a slick rear tire on the left side...not cool!

Went home...noticed air/seepage when engaging clutch.

Re bled, tightened slave bolts. Cleaned fluids off. Went for ride...happened again. Noticed pressure loss in clutch. And fluid loss.
Replaced o ring on anti rotation insert in slave.
Added fluid and bled.

Happened again.
Put Oberon slave on, replaced seal on anti rotation again.
Thought I was good! Nope! Almost lost it again! At this point I'm ready to ghost ride this piece of shit!

Took bike home, took fairing off, got it up to temp on the stand idling... Got an oil leak coming from push rod. It's like it's coming thru the engine and out the hole. Ducati says there's no o ring on the rod like my 1198. No call for RTV or paper gasket.
Not sure WTF to do. Any help would be appreciated.....I can't just make right turns....I can't even scrub in these tires cuz they get caked in oil.

Did you loose the little seal on the base of the clutch slave?

On part 19, on the engine side there is a thin rubber seal which rests in a groove.

It looks like the second picture. This seals the engine oil.

On the black part in which this seal resides, there is another o-ring part 18, but I don't readily recall if that will seal the clutch fluid.

I am a bit confused. Is it oil or brake fluid leaking, or both?
First I would remove the clutch slave cylinder again, take out the push rod and check whether it's bent. I've seen this before...

Thank you guys for the replies. I replaced the o ring on the black anti rotation piece. As far as that second picture...I DONT HAVE IT! I asked the dealer if there is a gasket or seal...they said no! Do you have a part number? Glad I spent the money on a new slave! Oh well.

Thanks in advance.

With the stock slave, there was hydraulic fluid leaking. I replaced the o ring on the black anti rotation insert. Still lost clutch fluid. Replaced with Oberon and new crush washers on the banjo as well as another o ring on anti rotation. Then noticed oil.

This seem similar to what happened to my 1199 a few months ago. The clutch rod seal went bad. They had to crack the case open to replace it. Thank god I was under warranty.

I've attached some pics of the engine apart and the invoice of all things that they had to do. I was without it for about 6 weeks....totally sucked. Everything is good now. I hope whatever issue you've got, it isn't what happened to mine.

Mother of god! They had to cut the bike in half! Lol. I was really hoping that it wasn't this. My bike is obviously out of warranty. I never saw the seal in the pic in the above post. I don't see it in any Ducati diagram either. I felt there's got to be some kind of inner axle seal type of part that the rod inserts into. The only one I saw was at the other side of the bike. The seal I saw looks like it can be accessed by taking the cover off from the right side of the bike. I'll try and find a pic online. I get sick thinking of all those WARRANTY lines get replaced with many many hundreds

Don't know how to post a pic with iPad. But it looks like that seal can be installed if u take the clutch cover off and go in thru that side.

Yeah, like i said I hope its a different seal than the one i had to get replaced. When they first rang it out, they forgot to apply the warranty, would have been around $2300. So i really do hope yours is a different issue.

Lance, what were your signs? Did u have a lot of oil? Also, did they crack the motor for diagnosis? Like I said, that seal looks to be accessible thru the clutch side. And are you aware of a keyed looking seal like the above
