I HAVE A 1999 FLHTCUI WITH A LEAK AT THE REAR OF THE BACK CYLINDER BASE. IT HAS BEEN SEAKED 3 TIMES IN A 6 MO PERIOD AND IT WILL NOT STOP THE LEAKING.
I SAY LEAKING. IT'S MORE LIKE SEEPING.
IT STARTS AT THE LEFT SIDE AND SEEPS TO THE RIGHT.
ANYBODY HAD THIS PROBLEM?

I just bought a 2012 Super Glide Custom, I have 250 miles on it, and noticed a stain on the bottom of the rear cylinder towards the trany case, that looks like oil. I felt it with my finger and did not fee oily, and it almost looks like a discoloration against the black powder coated motor, but sure looks like oil... I dont know if its spreading yet...any comments?
