The joint where the oil droplet is sitting in your picture is actually dry. No oil runs throughout there. So you know it is not leaking from there. It's either to the right (in your picture) between the base of that aluminum and the cam housing or where the oil pump shaft comes through the housing. As far as rebuilding the pump, the only easily serviced part in that pump is the rubber o-ring as DHG said above. I would bet on the cam housing, triangular shaped gasket that goes behind that pump bracket. From the picture it seems like you already know that all you need to do is pull off the rear wheel and you have easy access. Pull the lines off first or you will fight with them for 15 minutes while jiggling the pump bracket around until you figure out that you have to put the housing back on to get the torque you need to get the lines off (please don't ask how I know that).
