Too much oil???? Check it HOT and keep it between ADD and FULL and see if that helps.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 1200 custom sportster. It leaks oil

if the oil tank is above the crank case, inspect the oil pump check valve. go online and study the check valve's functional purpose and see to it that the vale is operating properly. it should not be an expensive fix.
if you reroute hose be carefull of rear tire annnd what does the oil level in the oil tank sit at when full and after the leak happens after -say a day of riding- a week

SOURCE: My 1980 Harley FLT shovel head is making louder

Shovel head lifters tend to wear out. Check your adjustment first. Shovels also run on the warm side. Does it idle good? If not, check for intake leaks.

SOURCE: Why is my motorcycle leaking oil from the overflow tube

You have a crankcase breather hose that may be blocked, allowing excessive oil pressure to push oil out. It should be routed to the airbox. This may also be the overflow hose you are speaking about. Your oil type may not be suited to a motorcycle engine, automotive oils are NOT suitable for bike engines for many reasons, notably shared gearbox and engine oil and a wet clutch. Check function of the oil pressure switch as this should send a signal of loss or excessive oil pressure. Check your manual for correct weight and quantity and type of oil filter needed. The oil level is indicated on the stem of the oil filler cap.
Cheers.

1984 had 32 degree rake instead of 29. one model had 2 inch over fork tubes. I added extra 6 degree rake (tripletree) and 6 inch over forks. still have the old clamp and fork tubes and would like to know...


You didn't say which model bike had the 32° rake with the 2" over fork tubes. This is what my book tells me for all the 41mm fork tubes:

1949-early 77 FL, FLH Fork tubes - Part #45950-48 length 20"

Late 77- 84 FLH, 1980-83 FLT, FLHT - Part # 45825-77A length 20 1/2"

1980-83 FXWG, FXD, Part # 45417-80 lenght 24 7/8"

This is all the information that I have. Hope it helps.

check the oil level again. trace the tube to see what it really is. make sure it isnt coming from the oil filter. had 1 that was the wrong size and was like 2mm off in length. screwed down tight but had a persistent leak. good luck. if it is the oil overflow, I used a very clean shop towel and wicked out excess by dipping it in the filler hole.
