08' LE 750 Engine oil leak w/ pics

Hi,

Just bought this 08' with less than 200 miles on it and I have not had a chance to really warm it up until yesterday when I discovered a burning smell and a dash of smoke. The oil only drips under power and not at a idle.
It is driping from one of these 3 bolts and the 2nd shot shows the smaller bolt.
Question. Anyone have this problem? Fix? Torque? Is there a gasket under it? I am No Mechanic and have no clue what these bolts are even for.
Thanks,

Jim

Seems I can't post a picture either....The 3 bolts are above the oil dipstick. There are 2 smaller bolts with 1 larger one in the middle. It looks to be the inner small bolt that is leaking. I have my pics on Picassa. I can emial you the link to the pics.

Thanks

I found another post from 2010 about the same problem. Member "Crow" answered great. O ring behind one of the 8mm bolts (Rear Cam Chain Tensioner) must be bad....and only 190 miles on it. Wow.
