Oil leak

Less than a year old and less than 2500 miles my 2016 Street 750 decided to dump a bunch of oil out of the transmission. Dealer determined that both transmission shaft seals went bad and need replaced. Surprisingly the dealer covered it under warranty but I'm still pretty disappointed with the issues I've had so far and with the experience my dealer has given me. Hopefully everyone else is having better luck.

My Rear Cylinder is leaking oil again. Was fixed roughly 1400 Miles ago. Looks like around the Valve Cover. On the inside edge where the exhaust pipe connects to the head.

Hopefully they get it sorted out for you. If mine starts leaking again after they fix it I'll be talking to them about a possible lemon law to try and get out of the bike. So far I'm not impressed with Harley Davidson especially being a first time owner.

I know the feeling. If my Sprocket Pulley breaks off. And Locks up the rear wheel, I don't want it back. Just give me something else.

My Leaky cover. Round 2. The Tech wanted to know what I did to the engine? Nothing except the VO2 Intake.


I washed the bike on Thursday. Checked the bolts to see if they came loose. OK. Hard for me to get a picture inside. Next to the Exhaust pipe.

That really sucks. Hopefully your dealer is better about helping you then mine is. When I took mine in for the 1000 mile maintenance I mentioned that the bike would stall out when down shifting with the factory exhaust and that I thought it had a fuel issue. They went on testing the fuel system 3 times and tried charging me for an hour of unapproved diag. Took two weeks to get it removed so I could get my bike.

Sounds like one of my local Dealers. Last time I asked about checking my Drive Belt, I was told 4 Hour "Diagnostic Time" if they didn't find anything. 4 Hours for a Dyno run to find out how much HP my 750 makes.

Why I don't go there. I stay where I purchased the bike.
