When you replaced the "pumpkin" did you do the proper refill procedure? Now I never ride in below 45 degree weather but the only time I leaked was due to improper fill procedure thanks to Clymers. I do agree with using a synthetic/multi viscosity gear lube would help but a overfill regardless the type will sling out.

06' 1100 Spirit (sold 6/23/13)
71' CL 100 "Lil' Sista"
99' Valkyrie
Ride Bell by "Yoman"

To everything there are exceptions.
