It could be the drain plug, the primary gasket, or the seal on the shaft coming out of your transmission that the clutch hub bolts to.

I have had this problem with the transmission shaft seal before.

SOURCE: What size & type of bolt do I remove from

There is a pipe plug that takes a Torx wrench to remove on the very bottom of the primary cover near the rear end of it. Once the oil is drained remove the derby cover and refill the primary. Fill right to the lowest edge of the clutch spring with the bike standing straight up. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will feel like it's dragging and you won't be able to find neutral with the bike sitting still and the engine running. Good luck, Steve

Oil leak how do I find oil leak in my 96 Toyota Camry the oil is coming out pretty pretty fast and there's always a Trail oil and a puddle

Put it on jack stands and get under there and clean the area where most of the oil is and then start the car and go back under and watch where its coming from. Should be pretty easy to find if its coming out that fast. Oil pan, Valve cover. how many miles on it?!

How to locate the engine oil leak does the car need to be running

Usually you won't see a leak until the car is parked. It's a good idea to put a piece of cardboard under the car after it's been driven to detect the leak or leaks. If you see any drops or puddle on the cardboard, crawl underneath the car and lookup under the engine to see where the leak is coming from. Look at the area above the puddle or dripping.

My transmission on my 2001 flhrci suddenly started leaking. don't notice leakage when bike is upright

Clean all oil from the bike exterior. Leave it sitting in an upright position for a period of time. This may require a bike lift or other such device. Then look for leak source. Make sure oil level is not too high. When changing oil it often gets on the cross member and may leak when on the jiffy satnd for a while until it is all gone from this area. Make sure to always use thread sealant and a good o-ring on the drain plug.

Oil leak between primary and trans

A leak in that area can be caused by a number of things. There is an oil seal on the backside of the primary cover that could be leaking. Also, there is a large seal in the end of the transmission that could be leaking. Usually when I pull the inner primary, I replace all seals in that area whether they are leaking or not. When you replace any seal, put a sealant on the outside surface of the seal where it seats into it's recess. Also lubricate the seal lips on the inside of the seal. If you don't, when the engine starts, friction will burn up the lips on the seal before oil can get to it. It only takes a second at 2000 RPM's to build up enough heat to burn the lips on the oil seal you just installed.

Good Luck
