Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FXDL - FXDLI Dyna Low Rider
The oil could be coming from anywhere. Just because this is where you see the oil doesn't mean that it's coming from there. When riding, the wind blows the oil around and sometimes you see it well away from where it's leaking.
You need to wash the bike paying particular attention to cleaning all the oil off the engine. Then, take the bike for a short ride of about ten miles or so. Check the plugs where the crankshaft position sensor and the voltage regulator plug into the case. Also, there is a large O-ring between the engine and the inner primary case. This could be leaking. For that matter, the cam chest cover could be leaking and running all the way across the bottom of the engine and dripping off.
A method we used to use was after washing the bike thoroughly and taking the bike for a short ride, we would powder the suspected area with foot powder or talcum powder. Blow off the excess but the oil would hold onto the powder giving it's source away.
