Clutch release shaft oil leak.

I don't know how but somehow while adjusting the clutch I managed to create a leak in the shaft oil seal. It's coming from the part that makes direct contact with the shaft and it refuses to quit leaking. Any ideas? Just bought a new seal just in case.

I have a love/hate relationship with this bike I swear to God.

I had a leak in that area. Mine turned out to be the outer stator cover. Any chance that you're seeing oil that blows back collecting on the clutch release? Fix was easy enough--just cleaned it up and daubed some RTV on it and put it back together. . . .

I haven't moved the bike, and the oil is definitely coming from the clutch release seal because I wipe it off and i can see it come out from around the shaft itself. Definitely not blow back as I haven't ridden the Vulcan since I messed with the clutch.
