honda 1000 inverter gen throwing oil

Just thought I should be informed before I take it apart. The engine runs well until the low oil sensor shuts it down, top it up and it runs well, and so on. It leaves a puddle of oil, runs for a couple of hours give r' take. Any suggestions where I should be looking as I start taking it apart, plastic first? Appreciate any help.

Is this an EU1000?

Everything is encased in the plastic shell so you'll have to open it up to see anything. Then follow the oil and find out where it's coming from. Aside from the electronic controls it's your average small engine so check the filler cap, valve cover, shaft seal, breather tube... for possible oil leaks.
