Hey everyone. So I have finally gotten my bike on the road. Took it out for a long run on Saturday and everything worked great.

Last night I took it around the block and when I pulled it into the garage noticed a leak. On the left hand cylinder fins there was some oil. I can't tell where it's coming from but it's only coming from the one side. Also, the left carb looked like it was leaking gas a little bit but i'm assuming that is a gasket issue for now.

Any ideas where to begin with the mystery oil?

Thanks,
Mike

Clean the area completely - your garden hose should do the job.
Then spray the general area with a spray powder-type athletes foot powder.
Start the engine, and you'll see where the oil comes from pretty easily when it darkens the powder.
The powder itself will wash right off when you're done.
