Question about 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster
This is a common problem. Now the heading says your bike is a 1979 Sportster. Regardless of what it is, there is a crankcase breather that is routed to your air cleaner. This was done to satisfy the EPA regulation that crankcase fumes must be run through the engine to be burned. With the crankcase air come a mist of oil. This oil builds up in the air breather and runs out. You have to clean the air filter out periodically. You can find the crankcase breather hose and re-route it somewhere else so the oil won't go into the air filter.
