Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLTR-FLTRI Road Glide
I started loosing power during a long uphill climb with two riders. Soon after I noticed oil blowing out the carburator. After riding a while longer I found oilon other parts of the engine. I had never seen a drop of oil before. Checking after I got home there seemed to be oil practically all over the engine. It seemed almost like the oil pressure had been pumped WAY on up there.I had been using a medium grade gas and riding slow on back roads for the most part so I put in premium with some octane booster changed the plugs and took it out and blew the soot out of it. Nothing drastic, Just maintained some RPMS for a while. The engine ran better then but the oil was still leaking. I changed the oil and filter and seem to see the oil more only from the carb and mostly from the front cylinder head. It is cold here but rode long enough to expand any shrinkage in the gaskets from the cold.
Thanks for any suggestions.
Sounds like you blew a cylinder gasket. I would replace both. I have the same bike and have done this 6 times. But also, do you have any smoke coming from the exhaust? If you do then you need to check your valves, and also the pistons to make sure the rings are not worn
