Final Drive Leaking
I was going to remove my rear wheel today so I could lube the splines, but I couldn't get the left muffler off.
I checked the oil in the final drive, and it was above the threads about a 1/4 inch. Is that too much? Should I let it drain until it's at the bottom of the threads?
I also noticed a leak at the final drive on the bottom where it bolts onto the swingarm. Could it be from too much grease in the final drive? It shouldn't leak from being overfilled I think, but I could be wrong.
I know there is a seal in there, and it could be bad, so it looks like I will be rebuilding it as well.
From what I have seen in the parts list, and read it could be grease from the splines from where they were lubed, and the o-ring being bad.
Whatever the case, it will still be torn apart as soon as I figure out how to get the mufflers off.
