Just thought this might be amusing. My 1990 XLH1200 has just started leaking very slightly from the front barrel. Everything else has always been clean.

Aaaargh!

Forgot to put in heads, not to mention No oil leaks!

Does a moderator fancy putting this right (looks like I can't edit the poll)?

Cheers

Well mine decided to start seeping oil where the cases meet right below the starter, only 3500 miles, glad it's still under warranty, the only pisser is we've got great weather for this time of year & my scoot is in the shop.:(

How about "Where doesn't it leak?" :) Just kidding... I've had a lot of different leaks. "Air cleaner" isn't on there, but was the worst one. The rockers were fairly easy to fix, as was the transmission vent after I found out what the problem was. Welcome to the world of Sportsters! :)

Got my scooter back today, Turns out it was primary lube coming up out of the O-ring where the stator wire comes out, Did at least get a free primary lube change even though I just did it about 500 miles ago.
