    You have two separate issues:

    1) the bike runs poorly because something is wrong with it due to it’s long storage period. Most likely low fuel pressure and an intake leak. That is the popping.

    2) Then you have a separate issue – the oil leak. Your repair action will depend on the severity of the leak. If it’s minor I would suggest leaving it alone. If the leak is major, the engine will need a partial rebuild. This is a HUGE project that should only be attempted by the best of mechanics.
