Hi Anonymous, take a 15 minute ride, let bike idle for 2 minutes and check oil level, drain or add as necessary to achieve full mark hot level. If you are still having problems, go to your local dealer and purchase part number 8873 check ball, 26262-80 spring, and 11105 o-ring. Then remove the the inboard cap on oil pump body with a large flat bade screw driver, use a pencil magnet to remove old spring and check ball, DO NOT USE!!!!! magnet on new ball. Install new parts and your good to go. Good luck

SOURCE: oil come out the air cleaner

Too much crankcase pressure or the breather pipe is split/dosconnected. The crankcase breather goes into the rear of the air filter and the crankcase gasses are drawn in to the cylinder with the gas/air mixture and burned

SOURCE: what type of motor oil used in 1994 harley davidson 883

harley recomends that you use their oil but i would be carefull because it is a cynthetic now if you were using regular oil what that will do is clean all the old build up out of the motor this can be bad because after time there are pin hole leaks that occure but the build up stops it from leaking but if you use cynthetic you cant go back to regular oil it will gum up on you and ruen your motor so you got to find out what has been put in it. but use a 10-30

Oil dripping out of breather. oil level on stick half way between add and full. 2003 road king classic. could it be a dirty air filter. bike has 15000 miles and looks like new.


Hi, Olive oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

1989 harley davidson heritage softtail carborator shooting oil


Shooting oil? Your engine is what we refer to as a "head breather". This is because the crankcase pressure is vented into the carburetor, by EPA requirements, through the two large hollow bolts on either side of the breather backing plate. They may be covered by rubber plugs but you can see them when you take the air filter off. Oil accumulation is normal but "shooting" is not. This would indicate a excessive buildup of oil in the rocker boxes and failure of the "umbrella valves" in the center section of the rocker box covers. I'd take the air filter cover off and clean it out thoroughly and see if it still did it. If so, you've got a problem with the crankcase venting system on the engine. Since I'm not that familiar with the Twin Cam engine, I'm reluctant to guess exactly what the problem is. In the older Evolution engines that I'm familiar with, I'd suspect the "breather gear" in the cam chest but I'm not sure the TC-88B engine uses this system. Sorry I can't be more specific.

good luck

K&N air filter mount is leaking oil


Welcome to the world of Harley Davidson the crankcase breathes threw this passage and EPA loves it ,the older models used to vent out and onto the chain to help lube it.So this is a normal event as long as there is not to much oil

Oil breather pushing oil


yea exactly as flstf93 says
and how about induction and the filter box? Does it match the increased air demand? but first start off with the breather kit really.

Oil blow out the breather


An overfull oil tank will do it. Even if not overfull just about all harley's will blow oil out the air filter. Unless there is a bunch of oil coming out, it's not a problem What I've found is that the air filter eventually gets saturated and then starts to leak through. The level in the oil tank doesn't seem to matter. If you change the air filter the problem goes away, until the new one gets saturated and then it starts all over again. My plan is to get a K&N air filter, which you can clean yourself and save having to buy a new air filter every 4,000 miles or so.

Oil blow out the breather


This is a common problem on all sportsters, they have an oil blow by that dumps it into the air filter. I have found that if I run about a half quart low the problem goes away.
