    OK, I changed the transmission/primary fluid on my sons 2005 1200, in:shockstalled new gasket, tightened the bolts in a star pattern and found fluid on the garage floor today. Is there a trick that I don't know about? I guess the large gasket slipped during re-installation of the cover plate. Any thoughts or suggestions? I have never had this happen after changing the primary fluid on my Heritage.

    Thanks

    Not sure but the fluid should be below the cover so I would check the drain plug

    My guess would be slipped or pinched derby cover seal.
