Question about Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider Motorcycles
If you'll remove your inspection cover and the derby cover as well, look on the backside, you'll probably see that the bolt holes have been "pulled" through on each bolt hole. The raised backside of the bolt holes holds your covers up just slightly allowing oil to creep underneath the gasket.
Now, you can do three things. Replace the covers with new ones or use a large smooth file, lay it flat on the backside of the covers and file the "pulled" through areas down level with the rest of the cover, or apply a generous amount of RTV to both sides of the gasket. On the Derby cover, Harley now offers a solid disc type gasket for this application. I use both the solid disc and the original O-ring on the derby cover.
