Oil leaks after you get it running and hot will tell you much more, though don't fix oil leaks immediately unless they are gushers; sometimes the gaskets renew themselves.
You should be commended for paying such close attention to your airhead. Many of us just can't resist starting a bike that has been sitting, risking damage.
Thanks for that bit of advice. I'll go through the connections also before starting. Will keep y'all posted.
