Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
Well, there is an "umbrella valve" in each of the center sections of the rocker box. These can and do get brittle from the repeated heating and cooling. They do a good job of keeping the bulk of oil out of the air filter but they can't get it all. As will all previous Harleys, they blow a bit of oil and those that relieve their crankcase pressure into the air filter do still make a mess that must be cleaned out occasionally. But, it shouldn't be excessive. Excessive blowby on the rings can exaggerate the problem.
To replace the "umbrella valves", simply take the bolts out of the rocker box cover and replace the gaskets and the valve. You will have to pull the fuel tanks to do this job.
