I wonder if someone had that side of the case removed before. Seems odd, when I bought the bike it had 900km's on it... hadn't even had its first oil change yet... donno why someone would want to remove the case.
You have to remove that case if you want to clean the oil screen. Not too many do that at 900 kms but I suppose it is possible. Same would go for the water pump bolts. Sounds to me that the case was removed for some reason considering the loose bolts and oil leak. You may have a gasket issue.
