    My 01 Wide Glide has devoloped a pretty good leak. It appears to be on the backside between the case and the engine. A riding buddy says it's commen with Dyna's. I always dumped the wet clutch and installed dry with Phase 3 belts so I am not up to speed. Is this a repair a weekend warrior can make, or should I take it to a pro?

    Thanks HD Don, I looked there first. Came out with even more questions.Sounds like these leaks can be hard to diagnose even when you are a pro.

    First thing to do is to clean off all the oil using a good degreaser then run the bike for a wee while then check to see where the oil is coming from
    if the oil is dripping from the primary it could be oil from anywhere
    once you have worked out which oil is leaking it will be easier to tell how complex a job it may be to fix it
