Oil Leak Right Side

Need help chasing down an oil leak. I know it seems like it would be obvious but air flow blows the oil all over and I cant tell where it is originating from. Leaks oil all over right side engine case but only after a couple miles of riding, not while sitting. I have replaced and sealed front cylinder valve cover as well as right side engine case with hondabond 4. Still leaking and driving me crazy trying to find where it is coming from. Anyone have other suggestions?

Pic of the general area?

If it's on the clutch side or getting on your leg, it's likely your vertical cylinder cover.

Fairly straightforward fix(so much so that even I was able to do it).

Probably from behind the modular oil cooler, where it is bolted to the engine.

Yeah the oil cooler is the next thing to check, just dreading the mess of oil and coolant when I pull it off. There was oil up near the top of the right side engine cover after my last test ride and the electrical connector on the airbox.

Oil was slightly overfilled but not by much, could it have been that much blowby? Drained a little oil out and plan to take another test ride to try to isolate a leak location.

The factory does a shitty job on sealing the cases especially the oil sump. Half the bikes off the show room floor practically starts leaking from the oil sump seal within first thousand miles.
