Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide
I would say that the two cases were not properly sealed when they were assembled if that's where they are leaking. Before the two case halves are assembled, there should be a bead of silicone sealant put around the inside lip so that they seal oil tight when they are put together and torqued. Of course, the case halves must be a matched set as well. There should be some numbers on the case, usually a four digit number stamped on each half of the case down on the bottom side. Make certain the case bolts are torqued correctly. Now, a lot of times when the cam chest cover (nosecone) leaks, it will run along the bottom of the cases to the center line and then drip from there making it appear that the cases themselves are leaking. Clean the area thoroughly and then go for a short ride or stand the bike up as straight as possible without it falling over. Watch for the drip in the later case.
