    I just bought an 06 Fatboy Screeming Eagle which has been customized. I am getting a lot of oil leaking or blowing out in the area of the oil tank when the bike is hot and it appears to be coming from the oil return lines as they enter the oil tank. I replaced the o rings and the oil line fittings and I still have the leak.

    Any suggestions?

    Maybe try replacing the line itself being you did everything else.

    Looks like it wasn't the oil return line afterall. I think that the valve cover gasket on the rear cylinder is leaking when the motor is hot and blowing oil onto the oil tank. Going to get a gasket now.
