Oil Leak Problem

I noticed today that there is a little amount of oil around one of the head bolt. Is that normal or is it serious?

It should not be seeping oil from around the bolts. While not "serious" it is a problem you should have the dealer fix. It's covered by the warranty.

Always remember that for every mile of highway there are two miles of ditches.

I do have an oil leak problem but looks like the oil is leaking from the part where the gear shifter is attached to the crankcase. pardon my noobness but I am not sure what it is called.

The flow is not much, a couple of drops at max overnight.

Taking to the center over the weekend. Can anybody confirm if this will be covered in warranty or not?

Thanks a ot Vicks, but with Harley its the labour cost that is more expensive than the part. The pick up and drop facility costs 2500INR plus taxes here in Pune,

one thing though how can it be worn out? the bike is just a month old.

These will and should be fixed under warranty free of cost.
I too had a leak in rear cylinder head bolt. Apparently it was worn out o-ring and it took months and lot of phone calls for the part to arrive.

I drove down to the service center & it hardly took 20 mins to fix the Leak. They mentioned that they had done some tappet setting in the previous service which caused a minor oil leak. They fixed it & did not charge me anything for it. After that i had no issues at all.

2500 INR seems to be very high. In Mumbai they charge only 1000 INR for the pickup & drop. (Sometimes they even might not charge you )
