'10 Electra Glide, I'm getting drops of oil from the vent hole on the bottom side of the soleniod side of the starter. it creates a small pool of oil on the top of the tranmission. Enough so that when i noticed it, it had leaked enough to get on the exhaust cross pipe underneath to smell it. Any ideas what coming ouot of the starter?

Only thing that comes to mind is the vent pipe for the trans, being close to the starter. Is your tranny over filled?

its not from the overflow tube, I watched it drop from the bottom of the starter. I had the bike on my stand, started it waited about 30 seconds and saw 2 drop come from the bottom of the starter.

I don't think so. O ring may have gotten pinched on assembly and leaking through there.

I was able to seal up the snout of the starter and put a small amt of air on the starter gear. I have air coming out both vent hole on the bottom of the starter. Im guessing that the O-ring is bad in the starter
