Check the rubber oil lines behind the plastic belt cover where the front pully is. one of the lines might have a hole in it.

Is it a concern an oil leak from the base rear cylinder 1995 heritage softail


You can ride it, but the leaking oil could cause problems if it gets on the rear tire, brakes, etc. You may as well replace both base gaskets at the same time.

Kawasaki Nomad1500..Oil seems to be blowing from rear cylinder; it's not bad, just enough to make it dirty.


check that all bolts are tightend to spec if they are all tight then check all your oil lines for leaks.sometimes a line will leak and blow around your head making it appear your head is leeking when its not.

Valve cover gasket


The rocker cover gaskets can be changed with the engine installed. There are some low profile tools available to make getting to some of the bolts easier.

I have a 2000 1200 custom sportster. It leaks oil out of a overflow tube under the seat.It leaks on the rear end when riding or on the grnd when parked. One mech replaced trans seal, still leaked. Another...


if the oil tank is above the crank case, inspect the oil pump check valve. go online and study the check valve's functional purpose and see to it that the vale is operating properly. it should not be an expensive fix.
if you reroute hose be carefull of rear tire annnd what does the oil level in the oil tank sit at when full and after the leak happens after -say a day of riding- a week

Oil leak


Hi, You don't say how much of a leak or if it is wet or blackened oil or if it is oil. Could it be brake fluid ? Clutch? I think before I pulled the trans cover I would remove alot of the fairing pieces and check for loose bolts, clamps, clips, check hoses, seals and overflows. Check levels to see what is low or maybe too full. Don't look for problems that might not be there! Find your source first! Good Luck!
