Oil Leaking from the side of motor ??
I have about 36,000 miles on my Vision and was cleaning my bike to get ready for the new season, when I got to the motor I noticed a oil smuge on the rear right side of the cylinder. After looking carefully the smuge is on the fin and appears to be wet inside at the cylinder weeping out to collect dirt. This spot is about 3 or 4 fins down from the top of the cylinder head gasket. Took to the local dealer. After looking I was told that one problem Victory motors had was on the cylinder studs on the cam side was a leak through the nut and washer into the cavity of the stud. That cavity filling with oil and weeping out the side of the cylinder.
The fix is to remove valve cover cover and replace the nut with an acorn nut to keep oil from getting into the cavity.
This is not from a head gasket. The leak is 3,4,5 fins down for the head gasket.
I have not seen any posting about oil leaking from the cam side of the motor.
