Your bike could have 2 problems 1. if u r running a s+s carb gas is getting past the brass bushings on the butterfly shaft .2 and it sepping past your piston rings,thus runninr into the bottom end,but the first thing to check is the petcock,make sure it shuts off,if not theres your problem!

This could be an indication you have bad rings! I have also seen times when the carb vent is plugged and the bowl will overflow into the intake when the bike is not running. This fuel will then seep between the cylinder and the piston into the crankcase. This caused cylinder wall wash and required honing the cylinder and re ringing the pistons

Oil leaking into carb


All Harleys will get a little oil in the breather.

However, when mileage causes the rings to wear, combustion pressure can leak past the rings, causing higher pressure.

You didn't state your mileage, but at 11 years old, your engine might be ready for a top end rebuild.
