Probably a bad gasket higher on the bike than you are seeing the drip. Clean the engine well and put some powder (talcum powder or something similar) on the side of the engine to help you see the trail of oil. Follow it back to it's source.

I have oil that drips of my shifter, but the leak is at the rear cam chain tensioner. Sometimes you really have to look hard to find exactly what is leaking.
