I have a 2004 Super Air 210 and noticed oil in the bilge and on the port side engine compartment divider.    I put a few paper towels in front of the panel across from the engine block pulleys and noticed that the spray increases as the RPMs increase.    I haven't been able to figure out where the spraying oil is coming from yet.  It isn't a lot of oil, but I'd say it would add up to an ounce or two if I was to run the engine for a few hours at anything over idle.  Is there a gasket that is known for failure or is there something else that is a good starting point to check out?

I think I'd be pulling both engine compartment dividers to give some halfway roomy access, pull out a flashlight and get a better look at things.

It sounds like oil on the harmonic balancer from a timing cover seal leak or timing cover gasket leak, neither of which will be easy to fix in your v drive.

Maybe you'll get lucky and it's leaking from a valve cover gasket
