Hi, Franco and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Improper valve clearance (too tight)
17. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
18. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
19. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
20. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
21. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
22. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
23. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
24. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
25. Tilt sensor needs a reset.

Hi, Irv external oil deposits fall into 3 categories:
1. WEEPAGE is the oil that is sweated pass gaskets, seals, o-rings, and crankcase seams, it's covered by dry dust and is normal for older engines with lots of miles, no repair is necessary.
2. SEEPAGE is the same as weepage except the deposit is wet and confines itself to a specific area, the repair is optional depending on the owner's cleanliness criteria, the deposit location and the weight of his bag of "DRACHMA"
3. LEAKAGE is the same as seepage except it is enough to drop to the ground leaving a spot. Repair as necessary.
To find the source of your oil leak, start at the point where you see oil and trace its path going up and forward, blowing baby powder from the palm of your hand will help in those difficult to see areas if there is too much oil present then buy a spray can of engine degreaser apply it to the affected area then rinse off with a pressure wand or garden hose, use compressed air to blow off excess water or just let it drip dry, take your bike for a 15-minute ride and check for the leak.

Greg Mahin is our Fixya expert and HD Dealer but I haven't seen him this week. It is a known issue. I found this
VIN ERR can occur at start up for a variety of reasons. Often when the bike is doing a hot start.
Ensure the battery is in good condition.
Also that the positive cable and negative battery cable is clean and tight at both ends.
Depending on what set up you have MAP/ECM wise, check that your automatic compression releases are set to the On position.
There is a new standard calibration available to stock 110" model bikes related to just this issue, however I think your model is a 103" so not sure if that has an option to be remapped.
The general idea of the new map is to allow for those first couple of turns of the engine to be easier by opening the ACRs as soon as the ignition is turned on and maintaining that position for approximately 10 seconds at which point they'll close regardless of whether the start button is pressed to avoid damaging the driver coils at which point another OFF/ON cycle is required to open them again. This creates less stress for the battery which if it falls below a certain voltage whilst starting will display VIN ERR on the speedometer.
The previous maps and likely what is on your bike only opens the ACRs when the start button is pressed which doesn't provide a time frame sufficient for them to do their job in certain situations.
As aggravating as it is, the VIN ERR displaying isn't going to harm your bike but you will occasionally experience more difficult starting like that feeling that the bike is barely turning over.
Not really solved your issue but it might be worth speaking to your dealer and seeing if you have the option of an updated map.
