Hello Gents, My 71 CL175 covers my right leg in oil whenever I ride. It runs strong and has no problem holding 70mph on the highway, but after I get done riding I need to wipe the oil off my leg, this isn't a problem when I wear shorts and nasty shoes, but with pants its a problem. There is a good puddle in where the spark plug is but there doesn't seem to be oil coming from the spark plug, the throttle cable area is drenched in oil too, the carbs don't appear to have any leaks..... Can you guys help me trouble shoot? Things to check? I have scrubbed the engine clean twice and reved the bike up and dont see any oil leaks, it only seems to want to leak when I'm riding it :)

on my cb200 i developed a leak at the tach cable seal inside the tach drive housing. easy fix but took me a minute to figure out where it was coming from.
