Slow Oil Leak

I have a really slow oil leak like the level of the oil goes down a half an inch a week. anybody know where the leak might be?

I have a 2001 polaris xc sp 600 edge


I think it might be the gasket between the bottom of the oil tank and the oil line. If it is that what is the part i need to get?

we cant see it, so what i would do is take it out of the sled and then you should be able to figure it out.

If it is the same as my 99, mine had the same effect.the tank was leaking at the spigit for the oil line.there was a rubber gramet with a metal spiget pushed in it. I had to buy a new rubber grommet very cheap fix.
