Well the sluggish problem did end up being the spark plugs it runs so much better but its a new problem now...I took it to a place around here where I know the guy pretty well and they replaced the plugs pretty quickly and I rode it back home all happy. When i got home i noticed all this oil all over the right side of the bike and on my shoe. I checked the engine oil level it wasnt low so i cleaned it up and ran it to see where it was leaking from..couldnt find it. So i rode down my driveway and back and sure enough there was oil again on the right side and i think i have a good idea where its coming from but im not too sure. There is this foam piece behind where the arrows are pointing to thats pretty much getting soaked with oil and i think thats where its starting from. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. Thanks guys

most likely a valve cover gasket. I don't know how they could have caused that by changing the plugs, probably just coincidence.

on 2nd thought, if they loosened the bolts on the valve cover for some reason, they may have just pinched the gasket when they put it back together.
