Different oil leak

OK here is another place where the VN 750 can drip oil. At least on my 1995 VN 750. Look here: http://choppbobby.com/hole.JPG . Oil is seeping out the hole where the yellow pointer is.
I can't see up into the hole with a mirror, and neither my Clymer's nor the Kawasaki service manual shows it. (I couldn't find it anyway).
Any ideas about what the hole is?

Oil leak

I think my bike leaks oil out the same hole as yours.I could not check the pictures to verify.I could send you a picture where my oil is coming out .
It only leaks when the bike runs ant gets hot .Takes about five minutes.

That's because Bobby moved on to an 800, like about two years ago. His original post is 4 years old.

I cannot for the life of me remember if it's the water pump mechanical seal or something else that caused the oil leak, because I do seem to remember he was pointing to the weep hole for the coolant system.
