Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger
If you are referring to oil that is on the air cleaner....? Welcome to the world of Harley. Here is what happens, as the pistons move up and down they displace air in the crankcase, this air churns up oil mist and has to go somewhere right? Well it does it eventually if need be comes out the little breather tube into your air filter...if you have a lot of mist it soaks the air filter and drips down then gets blown usually in my case on my leg.
How can you fix this? It could be the umbrella seals in your heads are tired or worn, to replace these is fairly easy just a pain, and yes if you drop something in the head....costly to recover sometimes. If the seals are okay there are a number of aftermarket fixes like Mystic or something like that. You are look at a couple of hundred bucks in parts for that option. Been there done that on my 10.5CR 103" build. Hope this helps.
