I was letting the 95GL 1500 warmup this morning and i had some smoke coming from under the fairing, out of the radiator area and the right side of the fairing. Was like some oil was burning off of something?
Any ideas what might be the issue?

It sounds like an oil leak, and oil was burning off the exhaust or the engine when they got hot. Is this something new? And is it oil smoke or steam, like from the cooling system?

It was oil. Just looking for possible leak places

I would consider the valve cover gasket and valve cover bolt gaskets . With age they become hard and dont seal well . Do not over tighten the cover bolts thinking to solve the problem . The valve cover bolts have a shoulder/stop point . This is to put the precise pressure on new gaskets to seal the cover . Overtighten and you risk breaking a bolt off .
Another possibility is the shifter shaft seal leaking and the smoke was only wafting up and out the right side .
