Need some info guys, Just came back from a 2000 mile trip, cleaned up the bike and noticed what look like oil on the top of the left valve cover, I cleaned it off and started her up, let her run and warm up and the oil was leaking out again,
What could it be ?

Thanks guys !

Valve cover gasket most likely.

Clean it off again and spray it with some kind of women's powder deodorant, let it run a bit, if it is seeping past the gasket the powder will help you see it better.

Hey that's a good one. Have never heard of that.

What kind of history? Valve adjusment done lately? Is it coming from front or rear? If I am reading right, it leaks after cleaning off the area and without riding it, after starting it leaks again ... correct?

For a minute there I thought Kit was going to say that womens spray deodorant would fix the leak. I was just about to call up HD with a great new HD branded product idea. :joke:

Spray foot powder works great also.
