    Took oil level down a smidge and fired up cold this morning, no smoke. Why having the oil tank a whisker over filled would this happen? Wouldn't go out an overflow and or just stay in circulation.

    And is that oil just burning off that was why it was smoking? I am not sure but things were fine this morning rode 45 miles to work in 53 degree beautiful day!

    Also the guy who had this before me had 2 oil resevoir dipsticks 1 short and 1 a little longer, does anyone know whcich 1 is right. Like I posted earlier I am still awaiting the owners manual from Harley.

    Glad you got it sorted out, the best resolutions are the ones that don't take $$$.
