What luck. Oil transfer.

Checked my transmission oil last night. ¾ qt low. Checked primary. It was right where it should be. Added the oil. Texted my salesman to let him know there prep was a joke. Just got in. Checked it again. Low again. This time when I loosened up the cover. Here come the oil. Mother fucker. No vent tube. Guess it's an early build. My trike has it. So I just texted him. See if I can drop it off tomorrow and make sure they have a rental for me. I want it done asap. Not when they get to me. We'll see how that goes.

That sucks to hear! Once you get that vent kit,that should fix it. I think the MoCo started installing those kits later half of the 19 model year

The Freewheeler has it and zero issues in 6400 miles. So I'll say that the vent is the fix.

Seems like both you and your bike will be going in for surgery soon and both of you will be coming back strong and healthy again!

Sorry to hear John, I am sure they will make it right.

They put the vent tube in on my bike last week when it was in for service.

I just starting to show signs of transfer.

It's like a 2 hour deal, tell them you will have a free cup of coffee while they take care of it.
