There is no set answer to this question. You purchased a used unit. Was there any factory warranty, regular or extended from the previous owner that could be transferred into your name? Was there any written agreement between you and the dealer concerning warranty? If not you may be at his mercy. Also the laws governing this situation vary from state to state in the US. Check with the state DMV.

SOURCE: my 2005 harley night train leaking oil from the

This needs a new gasket normally, unless there has been some impact damage which has cracked the casing(?) Check where the leak is coming from. If it is further in towards the middle of the bike it could be a crack or a seal between the gearbox and primary chaincase. If it is under the chaincase, you need to remove the footrest/boards and remove the chaincase screws, hitting the outer cover with a rubber mallet to break the seal, and taking off the chaincase cover, clean off the old gasket and applying a new one with some silicone sealer. Make sure you drain the oil from the chaincase or you will have a huge mess!

I'm sure there is a seal in the end of the starter and it can be replaced. The problem is that most dealers will not do this. They simply change the starter, it's quicker and they make more money on the job. This is a bad situation but that's the way it is. Now, if you wish to pay him by the hour to remove your starter, disassemble and replace the seal, reassemble the starter, and reinstall it, maybe he'll do it. But, I'd be willing to bet that this route would cost you more as well. The dealer is in business to make money.

This is why people with above average mechanical skills do some of their own work these days. If you can pull the starter and disassemble it, you can remove the seal and take it to most any bearing and seals parts house and they can match you up with a seal.

Good Luck
Steve

What could be wrong with my bike it's a flhri and at or about a half tank of gas it starts missing and backfiring had it in 2 Harley shops and not fixed yet


Hi Robert, it's seems pretty obvious it's fuel related and like any other technician some are better than others, I would take your bike back to the dealer and demand satisfaction politely and you want it fixed for free since you already paid big bucks for the practice repair. If they give you any static ask the store manager for the Motor Company's customer service phone number so you can ask them why your dealer won;t waranty their work in a timely manner. Good luck and have nice day. xlch@mail.com

1995 softail. crancase leaking only when running. cannot see where it is leaking from. seems to be leaking backside by the frame.


O/k I will assume it is a EVO (1995) not a Twin Cam (2005). If the leak is at the crankcase lower rear (below barrell) it is more than likely the crankcase itself is leaking. Will need a teardown to repair. It could also be the rear cylinder base gasket leaking. Oil will flow down the back of the crankcase when running.

it's probably your valve cover gasket leaking. I would take it back to dealership and have them repair under warranty. If they want to charge you for something new, DON'T let them fix anything, look on the internet for a shop close to you with GOOD reviews and have them double check the cause.

Your Sportster holds three quarts of Harley Syn3 oil. If you are not going to use Harley Davidson brand oil, use any good oil that is 20W50 weight and is rated for using in a diesel engine. Here in the States, it's a "C" rating. Such as SJ/CG4 on the API code. You can use either petroleum based oil or synthetic. Use one quart of Syn3 or Harley semi-synthetic primary and transmission lube. Any dealer should be able to order you an owner's manual. If there is not a dealer near you, find a friend that can obtain the book and mail it to you.
