    Ok,
    Did a stage one myself last spring. All Vance and Hines stuff. I keep finding little drops of oil on my gas tank(underside) above the AC after my rides. I have the VH naked with the HD Nostalgic cover (oval) and True Duals on 09 Heritage.

    Did not call VH yet, figured I'd hit you guys first.
    Thanks

    Might there be a breather tube that needs hooked up????

    Check the "O" rings on the back of the legs where they mount to the cylinder heads.

    Also check the breather hoses, some times they will collapse, or get pinched

    Every open type breather I have ever added to my Harleys has puked a little oil out of the breather, but only if I got on it pretty hard.

    Have you checked the oil level to see if it may be a bit overfilled?
