This may be totally irrelevant, but...
I have a 2003 K12LT. After towing it back from Washington state, I found a large oil stain on the wheel and trailer floor.
I thought it was final drive failure, but the K12LT folks said that it was simply a result of oil venting from the FD (through a vent on the top of the FD) because of major altitude changes--something they'd experienced while shipping their bikes by air or otherwise dragging (not riding) the bike over significant altitude gradients.
While I have a K75 (91) and a K11LT (93) I can't say that I've looked for such a vent on your model, but it's a marginal possibility.
