Oil leak from oil cover

Hey guys I got an 05 R6 and its been leaking oil from the stater cover on the right hand side, I applied an appoxie and stopped the leak but just in the last day or two its now leaking from the left side so I am just trying to figure out if its my coolant that is overflowed and leaking when I am riding it does not leak when idle or standing just when I am riding, I am trying to go the cheap route and fix it myself I am gonna go by the store tonight and get JB weld brake cleaner and few things but I just wanted to know is there some other way or something better that i can fix that the small crack thats on the bottom of the cover and what could I apply besides JB weld thats the only thing I need to work on because I know how to change the oil but its just the leak I am trying to fix myself thanks again guys....
