I want to thank you dudes for all the work you’ve shared over the years. This place is the reason I picked up a camera in the first place. The community that existed here was special. Hope you’re all well.

A total-loss oiling system almost never means that the engine actually leaks oil. How often do you see a puddle of oil under a 2-stroke? Now how often do you see an oil leak under a shovelhead? A total-loss oiling system simply means that oil gets consumed during the engine's use and needs to be replenished a lot sooner.

Regardless, Harley stopped using total-loss nearly a century ago. The "misconception" started during the era of the shovelhead, when harleys were notorious for having engine components machined off-spec, bolts loosening due to vibration, or the chain oiling system failing. Don't really see why you're getting upset since you have a sportster, one of their more reliable bikes.

"Let’s rewind to earlier days. Until 1936 (for the overhead-valve bikes) and 1937 (for the side-valves), Harley engines did not have provisions to circulate the oil through the engine more than once. This style of lubrication system is known today as “total loss.” Oil made its way through the engine and then was ejected onto the roadway. This was not exclusive to H-D. It was common for stationary and agricultural engines at the time to expel oil directly onto the ground. This system became impractical as engines advanced, but for the time, it was acceptable practice. In fact, modern two-strokes are still total-loss with regard to the lubricating oil."

Of course Shovelheads are gonna leak oil man, things are 30-50 years old. AMF shovels were known to have some issues, but they had more to do with electrical problems than machining tolerances. Ironheads, yeah totally different story, but most issues with Shovels was due to ignorance of the owners and their inability to properly turn a wrench.

I'm not mad, I just hate when people talk about shit they have no idea about.

Was the oil leak extra?
He accidentally bought a harley
Don't think thats a steam engine..
"A total-loss oiling system is an engine lubrication system whereby oil is introduced into the engine, and then either burned or ejected overboard. Now rare in four-stroke engines, total loss oiling is still used in many two-stroke engines."

Reading is hard. Harley VL's used a total loss system, hence the "Harley's leak oil hurr durr" misconception.

That is gas.
Figured as much. From the overflow lines? Used to happen to my Honda when the floats would stick. Rust/dirt from the tank would flow through the lines and keep the needle from being able to close all the way. Old bikes for ya.
Here are my two. Scrambler is the one I built from the ground up and what I experiment on. It's also the one that everyone said I would never finish (Aesop I believe).

Try a different hosting site. Can't see these bikes.

Hi, does anybody know what year the Araya Himiko RB-J1 rims came out?

2000-2001 I believe. They were standard on the XS 4X4 wheelset which I believe would have been around that same time period, maybe earlier.

I made these tank lift brackets out of 304 stainless at work. Gonna test fit them on the Harley today and see if I need to make any changes or if they're ready for polish and paint.

Pretty accurate TL:DR. Remember when they said the new forum would prevent spam bots, and in turn just locked out roughly half of the active/veteran members while still allowing spam bots in? Good times.
