    My 2008 electra glide has oil in the air filter. I have a stage 1 with rush pipes se air cleaner and and the power commander. Its not a lot of oil but I have to clean my air filter about every 3000 miles or so. Is this normal?

    It could be either overfilled or the oil pump could need an alignment.

    Some oil on the air filter is normal with a stage 1. Nothing to worry about as long it's just a little bit.

    My Streetbob did this, So I put in 2.5 quarts of oil and problem solved, try a bit less oil next time and see if it helps:p

    Same with me. I put 3.5 quarts in my 08 Road Glide and it cured the problem.

    mist free seals by doherty in the rocker boxes works wonders over the stock umbrellas.
