clutch may improve with riding, remember its probably got a bit of surface rust/sheen on it and will be a little grabby.

suspect the oil on boots is from the push rod tub seals. They are rubber and at the base of the pushrod tubes on either side. Old rubber= fail

Dont know about the cancel buzzer, but mine doesnt have one.

Tach and speedo just need to be lubed and will probably smooth out for 95% of the time.

No kill, gotta turn it off with the key!

side stand is spring loaded and takes a little getting used to. Its probably not in the factory position and bent some from years of use. Stand should not fold up if the bikes weight is on it.

Tranny, fresh gear oil will make the shifts better. Its a very clunky tranny to begin with. I have found that if it gets a little low on tranny fluid or its needing fresh then it will be harder to shift.

ENJOY IT! You will grow to love your ugly duckling
