Oil Cooler Leak

Question for Fix My Hog 2014 Harley FLHTXS. The oil cooler on my 2014 Street Glide has some rock damage and has a very slight leak. I let the engine run, and it does not leak more under pressure. Should I replace the core or continue as is, monitoring the oil level?

    If it leaks now, it will leak later. And forget about a clean frame. Switch it out or bypass it I say.

    If its a small area clean it off with brake cleaner or laquer thinner and put some JB Weld on the leak.

    Good advice for sure. Even if the oil leak is small when it’s at the lower front of the bike oil can mist or blow back and saturate rubber hoses, tires, and other parts that will break down and cause an unsafe riding condition. Fix the leak right away.

    If the battery to key fob goes dead the bike will not disarm. As long as it is armed the bike won’t do anything but set off the alarm. I have never been able to disarm by the directions in the manual. Fix oil leak as soon as possible.
