1985 vn700 final drive leak

OK so first of all hi
Soo about two weeks ago I bought my first road bike a 1985 vn700A I picked it up for an even 1,000$ . I was pretty happy with that it runs good rides nice but over the past couple weeks I have been just watching closely for hidden problems and yesterday I noticed an oil leak from the final drive . It seems to be coming from the front of the drive shaft from under he rubber boot. I have done some researchand, as far as I can tell I'm guessing it is leaking from back by the final drive and running up the drive shaft. and dripping out there I have been making sure the oil is topped of in the final drive. but I as wondering if anyone has changed this seal before on there own bike and had any advice on how to go about it also Im 100% sure it's final drive oil (has that 90w smell) but any help is appreciated also my first shaft drive bike so it's pretty foreign to me.
