    Seems like i haved a small oil leak coming from the front frame of my 2012 H-D Ultra Limited. This statrted not to long ago and i happen to notice it when i ride my bike and after a long ride there is a small quater size puddle. I checked my oil filter, drain plug, and other nuts and bolts to make sure everything was tight. I still do not see where the leak is coming from. I hear I need to wipe the area down witj simple green or WD-40. Once dry apply baby powder and go for a ride and then if it still leaks you will see running baby powder.

    Anyone else have any ideas before I decide to take it to $$$H-D mechanics?

    Sounds like a plan to me! I suspect it is filter area that only happens from engine pressure. Your plan should prove that out.

    Or clean it, wipe dry, take it out and then blow power on it and see where it sticks. this way you won't have crap cooking on your engine, just a thought, good luck.
