1300 V-Star oil leak

When I changed the oilfor the season I noticed that oil was leaking(small amount) from a chrome piece with two bolts on the bottom of the engine. Does someone know what it is or where it goes? Jim MN

A picture would help. I can't think of what it could be either.

That is the drain tube for your combined oil pump and water pump.

The water pump and oil pump are in one assembly in the oil pan, if the water pump ever leaks coolant, it should come out of that tube instead of leaking into your oil.
It is common for a tiny amount of coolant to be present at that spot, if it is oil on that spot, its possible that maybe an "O" ring needs to be replaced.

I do not know much more then that, hope this helps.

Then in order to fix it I should drain both oil and antifreeze? I can't find part numbers for the o-rings or gaskets. Jim MN

What I posted above is all I know. Are you sure its oil and not anti-freeze?
From what I read it is quite common for that area to have a drop or two of anti-freeze or oil on it. If it is more then that, meaning dripping onto the floor that might be another case.
