Default Help needed for 2002 TBird

Hey guys, i am going to Royal Enfield Rider Mania, Goa. So i got my Tbird serviced yesterday and went for a ride of about 50kms, did a constant of 70-75kmph without any issues. Today, me and 2 other riders went for a ride of 100kms just to test the bike for any issues. I was doing 70-75 kmph easy but then i gradually accelerated to 110kmph and was on 100kmph for about a min. A C5 developed some issue so we stopped to check it and then after a while i saw oil leak from my Tbird. The main stand, chain cover and rear tyre were having oil. I got worried and we decided to come back. tell me what can be the possible causes?

Could be breathing pipe issue.
Check it and let us know. BTW do u use a free flow silencer?

@akas
Breathing pipe issue was in the C5. My bike's issue is different, the main stand, chain cover and rear tyre were having oil after i rode it at 100kmph for a min. It was doing fine when i was at 70-80 kmph constant. I just got to know that the oil is leaking from bottom side of clutch cover. But i am thinking that if it leaks from the bottom side of clutch cover than can it go to the main stand, chain cover and rear tyre?

I talked to my mechanic even he said that the packing has to be changed. But, please clear me on this thing that can the oil spill on the main stand, chain cover and rear tyre in case of leak?

yes as you can see in above picture , the main stand is just below the gearbox out put gear.
if the above mentioned oil seal fails the oil goes directly on main stand when standing.

the reason for oil on tyre & chain cover may be centrifugal force.
