Oil is leaking on my 2005 DR650!

I have a metal head gasket i have no clue why it is leaking!

I'm pretty good at fixing things is it hard to replace the gasket?

NO but first check that the head bolts don't just need tightening to the required torque.
RTFM

Are you even sure that it's leaking from the cylinder base??

Timing chain tensioner or something else is the more likely culprit in my experience.
