Mine is oily but not dripping so not sure from where. Toward the rear of the engine but it could be weeping from the cylinder hole (I call it a cylinder hole. I also call it a sling blade... some people call it a Kaiser blade ummmhumm)

Never owned a bike that leaked oil. Period.

If your bike leaks I'd fix it.

no leaks, drips, runs or errors......

I agree with KM, but mine is still considered a "newer" VN750 and I like to keep it clean. Ask Wolfie...he hates how I keep my chrome all shiny and clean......cuz he's jealous...lol

Don't like choice #1. I care and I still have to wipe off the rear sidewall!
