I had exactly this recently and it turned out one of the big banjo bolts into the bottom of the oil cooler was a bit loose. So have a look there, perhaps?

What type of chain lube do you use? In the winter I use gear oil and it accumulates underneath the engine and tends to drip near the stand.

If you clean off the oil, dry the area as best you can and then dust it with talc, the leak should show more easily.
