    Check and make sure your vent tube, that hooks to the back of the air breather isn't kinked.

    Mine does the same thing and this summer it will be time to gettrdone. However, mine only leak a drop or two while being parked and only from the rear cylinder. Curtis has a set with the S&S rocker boxes, but I will rather modify mine and keep the stock look. Call him and ask him for suggestions as I know he has dealt with this issue before.
