I'm planning on installing the "pushrod", just as a preventative measure. I haven't experienced the transfer that I know of. After my engine upgrade, I want to do anything possible to prevent issues with oil sumping or otherwise!.Also putting on the AIM Light Force to improve the clutch pull force (from AIM SDR install) and engagement point.

Well documented issue on the M8.  Google search "oil migration Harley m8."  You'll find quite a few items to read.

I've changed primary oil twice now and have not seen an issue.  Tranny fliuid level always the same.  4700 miles on my 2018 CVO Road Glide.

I have a 2019 CVO Ultra and 9 ounces of transmission oil migrated to the primary in 5000 mile. HD allows 8 ounces of migration so mine was documented to HD and waiting to see how much migration I have next time LOL I guess they all do that.

WHAT   ???  :o

Mother Harley actually created a specification to allow for a leak migration that never should have happened to begin with? 

If the same 8 ounces (but not 9!) leaked to the ground would that loss from the transmission still be ok?

Since transmission gear oil is viscous and will have significant surface cohesion to all the parts surfaces in the transmission how are they going to accurately measure a difference of one ounce?

S....   ahh, never mind.  These people keep getting stupider and stupider and assume the riders are the same.  If they're going to try to feed the customer base bullchit they should at least show us the respect of being subtle about it and not rubbing in our faces that they truly do believe we sheep in line to their corporate dollar slaughter.

 I Think I got you beat!
Trans holds 28 oz, my trans had just over 7 when drained.
Guess where it went?
This is a new 2019 CVO limited with just over 200 miles! Less than one week old!
Let’s see if the dealer and factory will step up to the plate.

I wonder if their "new" heavier gear oil is part of the MOCO 's solution. Thicker oil less likely to migrate....

Wondering the same thing.  Just saw this "new"  80W-140 Synthetic Gear Lube product in their January 2019 New Parts Catalog .

Yes, seen a seminar today trying to tell everyone about how much better it would be to use the heavier oil. LOL

This from the same company that tried to blame Cruise Drive trans problems on customers using heavier than standard lube back in 07/08.  Btw, I seriously doubt the increase in viscosity would magically eliminate the transfer problem.

For those who wish to keep their warranties intact and let the dealership and factory rep take care of this issue there is a updated vent for the primary. You will never know it’s there unless someone points it out.

Not saying this takes care of the cause but I was assured it DOES take care of the effect.
Time will tell and I will be monitoring the oil levels.

I’ll stick with the “factory fix” until they give up and buy the bike back. I’m told mine was one of the bad ones. 700 miles on a new bike and we noticed the problem at about 200.
