As far as I know it,s a common problem when parked on the sidestand, I purchased a new 1500A back in 95 and it did the same thing, After numerous trips back to the dealer they told Me they all did that, Years later and many questions to other riders some had the problem and others did not. I did not worry about it anymore, It never used oil, It was just a little pet pive of Mine when I would fire it up and it would smoke for a couple of seconds. I used to just center stand it and it was fine. Take care
