    I have a 2004 road king with 45,000 miles on it.I recently noticed oil leaking from around the stator plug.I also noticed that me engine oil level was getting lower.So,when I went to check my primary and removed the derby cover,oil poured out.That leads me to believe that engine oil is leaking into my primary case.My question is: is this a common occurence,what could cause it,and is it an easy (somewhat)fix? Thanks,Ben

    Not a very common occurrence but it does happen. It will require removal of the primary cover and chain/ stator unit to replace the seal that is causing the migration.

    I have the same problem at my 1989 electra glide with rebuild engine.I have changed the oil seal with no results.
    I heard it is a tip, how to put the spacer which is behind the oil seal in the right position,if you don't know the exact position the problem will remain.
    I'm waiting for the tip.
    Thanks
