If your machine is leaking oil the #1 thing to check/replace is the head gasket. Normally you will see oil around the head of the engine behind the valve cover

It is wet on one side of the v twin. As Im running the engine it is just blue smoke coming out of the muffler

Then you have a blown head gasket in that side most likely.
