17 RGS, transferred 7 ozs between 4000 and 8000 miles. I'm at about 10,500 now and levels are perfect since 8000. I guess the cure is "divine intervention" because I did nothing different.

Yes. 2019 FLTRX. Transferred about 8 fl oz in the first 1000 miles of new bike. Vent kit will be installed under warranty when they arrive down here next month.

LITTLE UPDATE: checked trans oil an hour ago. More has gone into the primary in the last 400 miles. I will just keep draining primary and refilling trans with the same excess via a clean oil pan until the vent kit comes in. I notice a guy on another forum with a 19 has reported that the H-D ventkit has indeed fixed this on his bike.

I just now ordered the larger clutch rod.
I brought my bike 2 hours north of here west of Chicago...
Rather than deal with the dealer, 45 mins from here...I've decided to throw $96 at it.
Figured I'd just change the rod when I do my 1st service, simply makes things easier...for me. I try to avoid strangers wrenching on my bike...sad but true! lol

Had to add to trans 2x's in first 400 mi. took it in they drained 60 oz from primary. Taking it back in if I have time this week or next. I have the fat rod will install but if they are going to vent I'll let them do it and still put rod in. Have 550mi on now and it just touch bottom of stick another 100 and it wont. At this rate I would have to add evey time I get gas
