Another issue I had at the end of last year that i forgot about. I cant see any leak but it is going somewhere. After 3 300 mile days it would be empty if i didnt notice it. The motor oil tank has seemed to gain oil. It is sitting there and the sight glass is low and the oil sight glass is over filled. Is it possible that the chaincase oil is leaking into the oil tank?

Oil also can’t leak Up. Doesn’t the motor oil level in the reservoir sit a lot higher than in the chaincase. You could have two unrelated issues.
I agree and could have 2 issues but if I fill the chaincase and let it sit there until i ride it it wont leak a drop... This happened to me the last 2 trips actually. I filled it when i got home the 1st time and watched it for a couple weeks before i went again. Then after the 1st day of riding it was showing 1/2 on the sight glass and had to add. when i brought it home and washed it thats when the P1335 code happened. Needless to say i was pissed off at it and parked it.
Going to open it up next week and see what i find

Well must be the seal. I took it all apart and split the tanks and cleaned it all up and cant find any sign of cross contamination. The oil tank was pretty ugly looking after 14k miles and i change it every 1k. at least that got cleaned out. Gonna change the seal
