I would take off the sprocket cover and have a look how much gunk is behind there and give it a good clean. Then see if your still getting the drips.

 :0461: .... and also worth doing as there could simply be coincidence with the oil change and in fact be a totally separate issue like a starter leak from the gearbox sprocket. :027:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

Could be the air box drain, oil from the crankcase breather if not a vapour will drain out.
AFAIK, there is no air-box drain?
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.
