If it is leaking at the clutch release housing which is the only place I would expect an oil leak like that to be then likely the o-ring is not sealing where the cable enters the release housing.

Clutch cable leaks


You need a new cable. It points downward from the primary cover which contains oil, and some of it sits in the lower part of the cable. If it is frayed, it will leak.

How to stop oil leak from clutch cable


If the oil is leaking out of the clutch cable, you must replace the clutch cable. The cable has a seal in the end of it that is supposed to keep the oil from getting into the cable. If the seal is bad, there is no way to dix it and the cable has to be replaced. If the oil is leaking where the cable goes into the transmission, there is an o-ring aound the threaded end of the cable that could be bad. It depends on whether the oil is coming out of the cable or around the cable.

Good Luck

I have oil leaking from my clutch cable what is the cause & solution to repair.


The clutch cable has a seal in the end of it to keep transmission oil from working it's way up the cable. If yours is leaking, the only way to fix this is to replace the cable. Drain the transmission and remove the chrome end cap on the right side of the bike. Disconnect the cable inside the cover and at the lever. While you're in that area, replace the small throwout bearing on the end of the clutch pushrod and put a new o-ring on where the cable screws into the chrome release mechanism cover.

Good luck

2008 Harley davidson cluch cable leak


There's nothing in a clutch cable to leak. It's simply a cable housing with a twisted cable inside of it. There is a seal to keep the transmission fluid out of the inside of the cable. But, if you're leaking trans fluid at the lower end, read on.

Now, down where the cable goes into the chrome clutch release mechanism on the right side of the bike, there is an O-ring on the cable to prevent trans oil from leaking out. Try tightening the cable right where it goes in. If this doesn't stop it, you'll have to remove the cable and replace the O-ring.

To replace the O-ring, you will have to remove the chrome clutch release mechanism. First drain the transmission oil by removing the drain plug. You'll probably have to remove at least part of the exhaust system to gain access to the release mechanism. Then remove the bolts that hold the clutch release mechanism on. Turn the release mechanism over to where you can disconnect the clutch cable for the release ramp. Turn the clutch release mechanism off of the cable. Replace the O-ring, put on a new end gasket, and reassemble in reverse order. Torque the bolts that holds the chrome clutch release mechanism on to 100 inch pounds. Refill the tranny with oil.

Good Luck,
Steve

Clutch cable leeks oil


The o-ring around the threaded end where it enters the transmission only keeps the oil from leaking to the outside. If you're getting oil on the inside of your cable, the cable needs replacing. The small oil seal is in the end of the threaded piece that screws into the transmission end cover.
