Found oil leak - Pull tune & take to dealer? (Pics Inside)

Well, I've had my VRSF downpipes since Feb and finally set some time aside to do the install this morning. I pulled the belly pan and immediately noticed a decent sized oil leak where there motor bolts to the trans (DAMMIT!).

Obviously the DP install will have to wait... I'm guessing I should pull the JB4 and just take it to the dealer? I'm covered under a 3rd party warranty, so $$ out of pocket should not be an issue. Let me know what you guys think and thanks in advance for your input.

So I endued up pulling the tune and took it into the dealer. They called back and said a leaky valve cover gasket was the culprit and it would take about 5 hours to fix. Luckily I'll be able to pick it up tomorrow and hopefully move forward with the dp install... I know, I know... "cool story bro".
