I just bought this 81 XS605 spec. I notice when it's on the side peg it leaks oil from the leaning side about where the peg is mounted (No I haven't looked it over yet) but it does not leak when it's on the center stand. Anyone with a XS have the same problem for a quick fix? I want to start riding to work and would rather fix it first..:icon_mad: thanks for any help

Most likely it is the clutch push rod seal. If replacing the seal you might as well replace the bushing also. The part can be found at MikesXS along with instructions for replacement in the tech tips section.
The second culprit for an oil leak on the left side is the drive sprocket seal. Most times that can be fixed by retorquing the sprocket nut 70-80 ft lbs.
