Hi ......Oil can only be 'lost' through leaks or burning. If you have no leaks then I would suggest a compression test to see if the rings are suspect or replace the valve seals. If you remove the spark plugs the colour will indicate a fault. The getting slower MAYBE a sign you are having a partial siezure ............. does your oil warning light come on or flicker ? Have you recently changed the oil filter ?  Let us know how you get on.

The o-ring on the filter housing could be the problem, or maybe it was not tightened properly. You will need to clean all the residual oil off, position you bike in the upright position and determine the leak source. Hopefully it's not a case cover. Good luck, i hope this helps.

My harley has a small leak coming from the air filter, the mechanic at the harley dealership told me it was the air filter. So i bought a new filter put it on and checked the oil level, with the bike...


Regrettably, a small oil leak from the air cleaner assembly is "normal". This is because the EPA requires all crankcase emissions to be routed to the intake system so that it can be burned in the engine. The result is that oil mist in the crankcase vented condenses in the air cleaner and eventually drips out.

The crankcase vent for your Sporty is in the heads. If you noticed, there are two large bolts that are hollow holding the air filter backing plate on. The crankcase vents into the air cleaner assembly through these two bolts. There is an "unbrella valve" in the rocker box center section that allows the air to flow one way but not the other. There are baffles in this area to keep the oil mist to a minimum but still there is some in the air coming out of the engine.

There are a few kits available on the aftermarket for re-routing this crankcase vent. You can direct the exit anywhere you wish using one of these kits. Most people just route the hose down and exit it under the bike just in front of the rear wheel.

When adding oil to your bike, only add the oil when the engine is hot. On your dipstick, you have two marks. The upper mark represents "FULL HOT" while the lower mark represents 'FULL COLD", Do not overfill. Check the level with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck

Sometimes water vapor gets in through the vent in the crankcase and as the motor heats the only way to go is up!!!!! I wouldn't worry about it since you checked the oil and it looked fine.

It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.

How often should I cahnge the oil?


After the first oil change at ~600 miles (which your manual says that you need to go to the dealership for anyway) the Monster Owners Manual states that you are only required to change the oil at the same interval as the required valve service. So, if you go directly by the book AND have your 6000 mile services done at the dealership, you could probably get away with never having to change your own oil. I said COULD, but I didn't say should... Why, you ask? First of all because if you aren't changing your own oil you'll probably never be technically proficient at doing anything on your Monster. It's the most basic maintenance that you can do, and if you aren't comfortable with doing that you'll never be comfortable with doing anything else. Second, like washing your bike, changing your oil is a good way to become familiar with your bike and how it's doing. Your head and hands will be down at the bottom of the bike and you'll be able to see if there are any fluids leaking anywhere else. You'll also get to see, feel, and smell the oil that came out of your bike. Even if you're a complete novice and don't know what to look for, you'll still get to know what it looks like and if it suddenly comes out different, you'll know that it might need a professional to take a look at it. Lastly, regardless of what the owners manual says, common sense tells me that 6000 miles is too long to go between oil changes. I change the oil in my cars twice as often as that and I run less oil and run it harder in my Monster. I think that the oil should be changed at least once between valve services at 3000 miles and I prefer every 2000 miles. Think of it this way... If gasoline is the food that your motorcycle burns for energy, then oil is its blood. Would you really want your blood to get absolutely full of toxins and sludge before you kidneys cleaned it? Also, if you target your oil changes at 2000 or 3000 miles and you happen to be on a road trip and miss that target by a few hundred miles you've definitely got a little "wiggle room" without worrying about causing your bike damage.
