From this topic

Issues that (can) affect the 96-2003 DR650SE year models:

Leaky base gasket- The paper cylinder base gaskets first installed by Suzuki can suffer leakage. The norm is for the gasket to leak after time. The exception is no leaks. If a leak does develop, it is often no more than a slight weep, and many owners just live with it. Some have managed to stop the leak with a bead of sealant. Overfilling the crankcase might aggravate the trouble, so take care to keep the oil level correct. In late 2003 Suzuki changed to a steel laminated gasket that took care of the issue. The steel gasket has a small tab with a rivet in it on the front right corner of the engine below the oil cooler.

Yes, my '02 started seeping this spring right under the cam chain tensioner (CCT)
I work on my bikes in the winter and ride in the summer so I cleaned it really well and put on a thin covering of sealant.
Zero seeping after 4 months. :Roost:
I figure if I am going to remove the cylinder I will put in a high comp piston too :s_cool
