You need to locate the leak, it could be either of the crank seals, it could be coming form the seal on the oil filter or it could be coming from the oil cooler on the engine.
Could be leaking from the crankcase itself also.
Best thing to do is clean it really good and find the location of the leak.

Just had my governor seal replaced on my kaw25. Hard to see as it is behind the throttle link plates.

The governor shaft seal has been leaking on my K 25 also.
Is it difficult to replace?
I assume you replace it from the outside?
