Customer Question

2008 Ultra Classic -
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: When I park it on the kickstand I notice engine oil has come out of the air cleaner and been deposited on the derby cover. Need to know cause and fix. Thank you.
JA: What size is your engine? How many miles since your last oil change?
Customer: 1584 cc and 1 month 1500 miles, but that doesn't matter as it leaks right after oil change.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Has stage 1 kit and 69,000 miles.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Motorcycle Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

I see no way possible for oil to drip from the air cleaner on the center, right side of the engine to the derby cover which is on the left side of the engine and aft of the engine.

the oil would have to drip across the engine, between the cylinders, then backwards.

are you sure?

please be specific.
