    The paint had bubbled around the front master cyl gasket line on my 05 FLTRI. Showed it to my dealer and they changed the brake fluid and replaced the master cyl. no charge.

    One of the most common things you'll ever hear is, "They all do that." This is definitely not one of those things. No, not normal at all. It's a 2009 - get it to the dealer and have it fixed under warranty.

    More than likely it was overtightened at spme point. They should take care of it for you.
