Interesting. There is no oil passage anywhere near any exhaust stud on any Kawasaki...or any other manufacturer I know of as the heat would burn the oil quite quickly if not add lots of heat to the oil. Usually...oil showing around the exhaust flange and studs is from either access from very bad rings or most often very bad or missing valve seals with very loose guides. Pull the exhaust pipe and look for coking or burned oil on the valve stem(s).
