I have an oil leak on my 97 FXDWG that I cannot find. I have replaced every gasket on the bottom half of the bike as well as all of the oil lines. The leak still hasnt gone away. It seems like it comes from somewhere between the engine and the trans but I cant tell which side of the bike it originates from. It only leaks when the bike is hot, and it is a small amount. I am just wondering if anybody knows of any way to make it easier for me to find this leak. Any tips would be appreciated.

Use some oil dye and add to the oil. Under a fluorescent light, it will allow you to pinpoint the source of the leak.

@gree: Oil dye works wonders and saves alot of time and headaches...
