I just read about the side stand problem. It is bolted to the side of the oil pan therefore the more it sits on the side stand the more constant pressure on the bolts holding the oil pan in place which eventually causes loosening and oil leaking. this is probably my problem since my bike sat on the side stand for a long time not being ridden. I will change the gasket and tighten bolts to spec and then keep it on the center stand i have now to avoid this side stand issue. I suppose another solution would be to just ride it more. Will have to work on that also.
