Did you change the oil...like really recently? If so, did you make sure the old oil filter gasket came off with the filter you pulled? If it stuck on the bike, you might have two of them stacked on there.

The only other thing I can think of is leakage from the relief valve, but I think that's toward the rear of the engine.

Can you tell what spot it's dripping from? Can you take a picture?

I'd fully clean the area where you think it's coming from, take a short ride, then watch it very carefully.
