Oil in engine bay, yam 90!?

Planning to go out tomorrow, but just noted abt a quarter decilitre lube oil in the engine bay.
It has abt 70 hours only, looking brand new inside, cant see any leak. It has been in a tilted position. Any ideas where to search? I am pretty sure its not a spill from topping on lube oil(in November). Thanks for any quick ideas

Could it have come out of the overflow cap if full and tilted fully up ? Get it a lot with the Mercs so I'm sure it can be same on the Yams.

Ahaa... can bee. As no leak during the winter and now a leek when keeping it tilted, sounds like a possible cause. Thanks! Will revert if issue not solved.

Briliant weather here now, daytime +25C and warmer, not usual this early on the season.

yeah Ive also found this to be the case when the two stroke tank is quite full and the engine is left tilted for long periods.
