I have a 2004 VN2000 with 16K on it. Today I pull into work, shift into neutral, shut the bike off, and my oil comes POURING out onto the ground. I am talking a quart or more. The best I can tell, it is coming from the rear of the transmission area. Any thoughts?

I'd call your dealership ....make an appt. and trailer it in! Sounds like a serious problem.

I wish it was something that easy. Heck, if I'd wanted a bike that leaked oil, I'd have bought a Harley!!

I don't know how familiar you are with it, but; did you check all 3 plugs?

If so, then it is likely some sort of seal like mentioned above.
Trailer it to a shop...

It was a damaged seal on the tranny shaft. Apparently caused by the belt being too tight
