First oil leak now coolant leak

2012 1199 with 16000 miles (15000 service complete). I've had an oil leak for a few months now, I am not very mechanically inclined and am having difficulty figuring out where it is from. From my research it appears cylinder head leaks are common as well as oil leaking from the airbox to crack case funnels. Result after a hard ride is about a quarter size drop on the left side by kick stand.

During troubleshooting I noticed my oil was way overfilled, and I read a thread on here saying that could cause problems. I drained until between lines but there is still a leak. Yesterday the coolant leak happened and once again I can't see of any obvious place that it is coming from. I just cleaned the bike off and plan to run it to try and further identify anything. I have posted some pictures of what I can see with the fairings off. This is all from the left side, there is no evidence of anything on the right side.

1. Is removing the tank the only way to view the vertical cylinder head?
2. Is the airbox to crack case funnel the one in the first photo with the clamp?

Thanks for any and all help!

Is there anyway for you to post the pictures normally? The links don't seem to be working for me.

Can't tell from the 2nd and 3rd pics but the first definitely looks like the spot i was leaking from. The airbox fix did the trick for me, I'd check to see if you're dealer will cover it.

Oil leak,take off the tank and have a look inside the airbox and clean up the mess. Also check the clamps. (And dont overfill next time)
If it leaks around the head covers just change the gaskets. I did use the ones from Athena,dont know if its the same as Ducati uses but they work great,i didnt need sealant. To access the front cylinder radiator has to be removed.

Coolant leak,check your clamps and tighten them.
