View Full Version : 71 Ironhead kicker shooting oil on start

I have a 71 Ironhead xlch and it seem to shoot a lot of oil from the vent tube when kicking it over. It only does it while kicking it. It doesn't leak when it's running. Is this normal? If not, any ideas on what's causing it and how to fix it.

Don't know what your oil filter set up is , but make sure it's the one recommended for your bike. Too restrictive can cause a back up. Check for damaged oil lines ( pinched, plugged or melted) too.
