View Full Version : Oil Leak

Great new site look.
Hertiage 04, as you know new rider. I have noticed a leak after riding for 20 to 30 miles. Anything shorter no leak. As before seems to be above shocks. Gold in color and thick. Will go to local dealer, would like some idea what it might be so I do not get the DICK AROUND from the dealer.

Best to our fellow riders on the West Coast from Florida.
The local HOG chapter is planning a ride in a couple of weeks from Fort Lauderdale.

Hi Cgarbob

Nice to have you come on over here1beer

Is this in the front or rear?

Just a thought does it smell like 90w oil if so could be your transmission is leaking or puking out the vent line. I would check the trans fluid level to see if it is over filled.

The oil is thick like 90w and the leak is coming off the two air shocks cans. What is strange about the leak is if I ride less then 20 miles and return home, no leak. A run of 20 plus miles or longer there is the leak. Seems as the leak happens due to a hotter engine? The fuild has a smell unlike motor oil. I also think trans. fuild. Will check level. Going this morning on a short ride to see if leak occurs.
Thanks for the help, will up-date later.
