dripping anti freeze? you sure its not motor oil? maybe its just a loose bolt?

and did you store it properly? covered exhaust...no oil carbs and fuel stabalizers?

You can't diagnose or fix anything with the fairings on. First thing is to take 'em off and clean up the area unless it's really obvious where the leak is. From there do what is needed to fix it.

But it sounds more like you're a "take it in and leave the keys" sort of guy. Many of the regular shops have a pickup service.

Valves, carbs and oil is going to run a couple to three hun'. But why not phone your regular shop and ask? They are in a better position to tell you than we are.

As for the anti freeze leak most likely one of the rad hoses is just loose and needs tightening.

Oil and filter changes are always best DYI style as it is really simple to do. Why pay some the labour?
