Hello folks, well i brought the 03 flstci home yesterday she a beauty! I parked her in front of the house ran in for few seconds came back out and $hit on the ground was oil.... I'm new to this harley ownership stuff but i cannot believe it should be leaking anything yet. Do you agree? I believe it's coming from the clucth inspection cover or primary chaincase area. I had the anniversary stuff put on and their is an identifcation cover located here, hopefully just needs to be tightened. What are the chances of to much fluid being installed? She is a beauty though, GNP is the color, she looks great in the sunlight.
Any ideas, suggestion,insights would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mac

Hey Dan, it is not supposed to be leaking anything.

You mentioned two areas. Both use gaskets either of which could be pinched.

First isolate the area and determine where the crap is coming from. If it is the inspection cover I would not just tighten the bolts. Remove em and inspect the gasket.

Keep us posted.

Oh yea, one other thing. I doubt that it is coming from either of the covers. The fluid level is below the base of the cover. Since you mentioned "oil on the ground" it sounds like something else to me. Did ya check the oil filter at the base?

Last thing is Primary Drain plug. That is probably the best bet for something left loose. It would have to be pretty loose though.

The service manual says to remove the quad ring and wipe all fluid from quad ring & groove. before reassembly. This happened to me once, and that was the problem.Of course I had no one to bit*h at but myself :D

Bring her Back!

You just brought the bike home, right?

BRING IT BACK TO THE DEALER! Better yet, call 'em and have them come out and pick 'er up and bring her in.

Your bike should NOT be leaking anything. I won't go into the details of your warranty but you are covered for this. Why should you be correcting what the dealership should correct? Could you do it yourself? Yes. Do you need to? NO!

For those members who enjoy doing their own wrenching, good for them. Less hassle than returning the bike to the stealer. For me, the stealer will be correcting the problem.

Your New Wife should NOT be giving you any crap whatsoever. I won't go into the details of your moral warranty that applies, but you are covered for this. Why should you be correcting what her Daddy should a taught her ass to begin with? Could you do it yourself? (See that Hickory Tree out back Bubba?) Yes. Should you have to? NO!

For those members who enjoy doing their own wife wrenching, good for them. Less hassle than returning the bit(h to her Daddy. For me, the old bastard will be correcting the problem himself. Son of a Bit(h sat their drinking my damn beer telling me what a "catch" his little girl was.

Ya see how well that kind a thinking blends right in with the concept of Marriage? :D

Did ya miss me? BlaHAHAHmmmmmmm?Dot HA!
