Default New To Forum!

I'm new to the form here! I have a 1986 Kawasaki 454LTD. I got it from my father-in-law a couple of years ago. I rode it for about a year and then started to have problems with it! Well I finally got a job where I could start riding it again. So I thought I'd I look into some forums so I could learn more about it so I could get it running again and maybe fix it up some.

Which leads me to this.......I didn't see a forum for my model so I put this in here. When i last rode my bike it started leaking oil from what looked like a top cover seal well further investigation I found that the air boxes were full of oil! So I belive that the oil is blowing past the pistion rings and thru the carbs into the air boxes. Does this sound right?? If so then how do I find a rebuild kit or a rebuilt engine? It kind of makes sence that that is where the oil is comeing from because when I was riding the bike it never had much power, I mean I had to push it to do 75mph and to me that just doesn't seem right!

Here's some pics!
