I recently installed the Burst series air cleaner kit on my "12" Ultra. I have noticed a few different times that oil is dripping out of the bottom onto the cam cover . When I run my hands down at he bottom of the air filter there is a lot of oil and grime. I had the bike tuned with a new SERT after I installed the new air filter kit and the bike runs fine. What can be done to prevent this or control so it does not keep making a mess after I have cleaned.

Lower your oil level. Running mine just below mid mark. About 3 qt of oil. Oil check every month.
Run a search some one build a oil trap.

I put in 3 1/2 qts of oil when doing a oil change which put the oil at the 1/2 way mark on the dipstick and I have no problems with oil in the air filter.

I installed the outlaw racing breather bolts from DK Customs and did away with the breather tubes. Bike runs better and no more oil in the air cleaner.

A Kotex lite days pad on the inside lower edge of the cover will absorb that excess blow-by, just replace it every now and then. I'm not a proponent of "less oil" in an engine that is basically cooled with oil flow. IMHO keep the oil level at full, don't over-fill it and deal with a little drip.

Ride Safe, have fun, repeat,

I installed a kit from DK Customs as well. Venting the oil thru a filter to the ground. Have yet to see an actual drip in my garage.

If its an air filter that you spray to treat like a K&N, it will also drip oil if you've sprayed the filter to heavily. Also agree if the engine oil is overfull (at all) its coming out somewhere, usually through the air filter.

Trade that piece of Chinese made junk of a HD breather for an American made Performance Machine and it'll solve that blowing oil problem. AND you can run the oil on the full mark.
Least, that's what I did. :D

I had the same issue with the Ness Big Sucker on my 12 RGC, switched to the Vance & Hines naked VO2, bike runs stronger and absolutely no "blow by".
