Leak on right side

I just bought this bike last week so I am not 100% familiar with it, but there is a leak on the right side of the bike. Appears to be coming from down low, near where the clutch cable enters the housing. I think it's clutch fluid. I have posted a photo, any help is appreciated.

Pull the cover, tighten the line, install the cover. Stuff gets loose. Tighten it. Then , check the fluid level! wash the whole bike, and go over every nut and bolt. Tighten the loose ones, grease the greasy places, shine the shiney places, polish the rest! Then ride it! Relax, these are fine motorcycles. Pretty trouble free! ��Joe

If you plan on doing your own maintenance get a Harley Service, Parts and optionally a Electrical Diagnostics manuals. Well worth the price and the service manual has torque values for all those nuts and bolts. Interesting reading especially that Service manual.

Hey guys, thanks for the input.

I already got the service manual, so all set there. I pulled the cover and I believe the source of the leak was the bleeder screw. It was a little loose and the center was full of fluid so I tightened it and wiped up the excess fluid. Will have to take it for a good ride to confirm, but I believe that may have been the problem.
