What do you mean, breather tubes??? if you have fuel coming out the carburetor then your float level is too high and needs to be addressed. could be trash between the needle and seat or a worn out needle and seat. repair as quickly as possible as this will cause a rich fuel mix in the cylinders and can wash off the oil causing excessive cylinder wear. this also could be the source of your vibration problem.

Oil dripping out of breather. oil level on stick half way between add and full. 2003 road king classic. could it be a dirty air filter. bike has 15000 miles and looks like new.


Hi, Olive oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

Oil leaking from back of air filter


Hi Robert, oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For what ever reason the breather system is not seperating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more exspensive ones. Start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate
Good luck

08, 1125r...Just bought it. On my first ride i noticed gas drips from tube on the back of bike opposite side from exhaust. I assume this is an overflow tube but it drips gas for 15 minutes after every ride...


It is a known issue - you can take it into Harley but last guy I knew with that issue - they had the bike for a month and gave it back to him no changes said they couldn't replicate the issue. The gastank on the bike is getting hot causing the gas to evaporate and create pressure inside the tank - hence the gas dripping out of the pressure vent. Some guys have put some heat insulation in between the side of the tank/frame and where the headers get close. Other guys just wrapped their headers with thermo wrap - seems to help tons.

Harley said i have a wet clutch added oil they recommended through derby cover now oil comming out of breather tube??? don't want to ruin anything shut it off and started searching on line ...only got...


Your 04 Electra Glide does indeed have a wet clutch. Your primary case holds between 36 - 42 ounces of oil. Stand the bike straight up. Remove the derby cover from the primary cover. The oil level should be just up to the bottom edge of the outer clutch shell, the shiny aluminum ring. Do not over fill as the clutch will drag and you will not be able to get the transmission into neutral with the engine running. Now you said that you have oil coming out of the breather tube. What breather tube? The transmission has a breather tube but that's the only one. Your engine's crankcase breathers are located in the heads and exhausts the crankcase pressure into the air filter. This is required by the EPA. After a while, oil mist will build up in the air cleaner cover and begin to drip out. You have to clean this out from time to time. Your transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil and you fill it through the chrome end cap on the transmission on the right hand side of the bike. There is a plug that takes a large hex key or Allen wrench to remove. It has a dipstick on it. With the bike standing straight up, the oil level should be between the two lines.

Good Luck

2003 883 sportster that has oil coming out of the carb


All Harley engines built after 1994 have been what we call "head breathers". In other words, the crankcase ventilation has been routed into the breather through the heads. The requirement of the crankcase pressures being released into the intake system is the results of EPA anti-pollution regulations. Harley moved the vent from the lower crankcase to the heads to decrease the amount of oil blown out by the ventilation system. But, there is a certain amount of oil mist present in the expelled air. The mist will collect in the breather over time and will eventually drip out of the air cleaner. Regrettably, this is a fact of life with a Harley engine and it's design and it is normal.

Now, you can clean the air cleaner on a regular basis to keep the oil out of the air cleaner or you can purchase a kit that exhausts the crankcase pressure (and the oil mist) somewhere other than the air cleaner. I thnk Kuryakin has a kit.

Good Luck
Steve

89 Harley FLTCU oil coming from the crankcase breather tube and


This is an age old problem for the Harley engine. In you 89 model, the crankcase breaths from behind the oil pump through a tube that runs to the backside of the air filter assembly. Most people that I know, simply remove the tube coming up to the air filter and block the hole in the air filter assembly backing plate. At the breather, they run a short hose to just behind the transmission and cut it off there. This is similar to the earlier Shovelhead engine and the way it breathes. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather system" which was better but it still gets oil into the air filter assembly.

There is one thing I saw on the aftermarket assessories market once called a "CatchCan". The breather tube ran to it and it seperated the oil from the air and the held it in a small container to be emptied on a regular basis. I have never used one nor have I ever seen one so all I can tell you is what the book said. Matter of fact, I cannot remember where I saw it now. Custom Chorme catalog, maybe. Good Luck, Steve

if you have oil and smoke coming out of the breather on any engine it is a good indication that the piston/piston rings or valves are damaged,what is happening is the fuel oil,smoke is bypassing the piston or valves and coming out through the breather,i would seriously look atgetting it sorted before any more damage occurs,sorry but it doesnt sound cheap,hope this helps

Oil come out the air cleaner


Too much crankcase pressure or the breather pipe is split/dosconnected. The crankcase breather goes into the rear of the air filter and the crankcase gasses are drawn in to the cylinder with the gas/air mixture and burned
