Bought my VFR about a month ago - 08 - 30k miles Day I got it home I parked it on the center stand with paper underneath to see if anything is dripping. After 48 hours not a spot. Then left it on side stand for a couple days and I notice a small spot. At first I think its chain lube dripping off as it's running down from that area then onto the O2 sensor and sidestand and I had recently lubed the chain. For weeks nothing, but I almost always use the center stand. Then after I put on the new plastic and leave it on the side stand over night I see a small oil puddle. Hmmm What I know: It's motor oil It only drips when on the side stand It's not the shifter seal No determinable oil loss while running It's coming from higher up from where the front sprocket is hiding. The PO replaced the front sprocket some 10k ago All relevant thoughts appreciated.
