if the oil is leaking from the oil cap[where you add the oil] then probably your oil trap is blocked,i replaced the whole oil trap system ,got the parts from europarts ,if you can do the job yourself it cost about 135.00 make sure you get an intake gasket cause youll need to remove the intake to get acess.did my 850 glt 96 and now its dry uptop ,also if your going to do it make sure when you remove the oil trap you get a wire or something to make sure the hole is open otherwise you will have done it all for nothing good luck John
