    I have a 2008 Ultra Classic. I have been seeing a small oil mist on top of my crankcase below my air filter and Im wondering where it is coming from and what I may be able to do to fix theproblem.

    Welcome...........More than likely just a little too much oil in the bike will get some oil out of the air cleaner.
    Try running about 1/3 to 1/2 QT. less oil next change. About 1/2 way to 3/4 of the way up dipstick when HOT.
