Missing oil.

I have started noticing that the oil level is droping every time i ride and im getting tired of filling it back up. At first i thought i was burning the oil but the brute isnt smoking. I read somewhere that the engine can lose oil around the rear drive shaft. Is this true, and if so how do i go about pluging said leak?

I did my first one a couple weeks ago in about 15 minutes. I spent more time finding the hammer and cleaning up my oil mess than doing anything else.

man as long as the drive shaft comes out its easy after that .. just watch the video a few times and get to work... and fill out your signature so we will know what year and mod's you have done... bye the way the driveshaft can be pita.......
