Is the oil supposed to be that high in the cylinder where it could leak out? I thought that the oil would drain down below the head cover gasket.
Yeah, oil is supposed to be that high in the engine. Otherwise you'd have bigger problems than an oil leak. Since you had the cover off a few days ago, I'm leaning towards a gasket leak issue. You did use new gaskets and clean both mating surfaces real good?

But I have a bigger question........ You mentioned that you had it on it's rear stand. I wasn't aware of a VT-750 Spirit having a rear stand? All the one's I've seen only have a side stand. What's up with that?

Don't like the idea of taking it apart again, but the shop was going to charge me $265 for the job. No thanks.
I hear ya...... If you've got the tools, the time and the know-how; that's the only way to go. And in the end YOU'LL know it's done right.
