  • Oil leak

    2007 Roadstar 1700.....have an oil leak that started and can't find where it may be from. Are there any common leaks known to this engine.

    What? Is the whole bike covered in oil?

    There’s got to be a generalized area where it drips from when you park it. Right side?

    The most common oil drips come from the stock air filter when someone overfills the engine during an oil change and the crankcase breather tube pumps excess oil back into the air box and saturates to the point of slobbering out.

      Wipe underside with brake cleaner and paper towel... Start clean to identify leak

        Common area is from behind the primary drive belt pulley. Clean that puppy up and put a Harley diaper under it. Remember that everything will move to the left when the bike is on its kickstand.
