Can you see the leak? Where?

Is it an opposed twin or a V-twin? On the V's, they are overhead valve and the head gasket could be the trouble. You may need to thoroughly clean the engine and run and watch to see exactly where it is coming from. Post back with the engines' ID numbers so we can better help you out. Model, Type and Code.
