Hey there, I purchased a Honda SL-350 in parts about a year ago, I've been prepping the bike for re-assembly, had to purchase multiple parts and replace some others.
Discovered the clutch push -rod must have burst out and is bent severely, explains all the oil caked in that area XD
Picture soon!

A bent clutch push-rod is most likely from contact with the drive-chain.......
A weak/bad seal from the bend does explain some of the caked oil, although overoiling the chain could be a factor as well

So, the drive chain backed up, linked with the push-rod, and then the drive chain tightened, bending the push-rod?

Your sprocket is BEYOND worn-out.... AN overly loose chain simply "beat" on the pushrod......
I'd wager the marks on the pushrod are an exact fit to the chain width if I was a betting man.....
