Advice please...Drive shaft leak
Hello all, I was lucky enough to find a beautiful 92' 750with 5200 original miles. The factory original tires had some dry rot so I purchased new ones and took them to a local shop for mounting. Prior to this the rear driveshaft to my knowledge had not been cracked since the factory, and there was not drive lube all over my rear mag... I paid quite a bit of money for the eventual repairs ( see other post ) I took my own tires, and before it was lad done, I was out $1,000. the picture shows the area on the drive that was never wet before, where I swiped my finger to check the consistency of the glop thats on my mag and dripping on the tire. *Is this normal? Did I get poor work done, and what should be done to repair the issue? I'm a new rider, and although I purchased a manual and have restored and maintained my own classic cars over the years , I just wanted to leave what I thought were simple maintenance issues to a seasoned mechanic and enjoy my first year of riding....I don't think this should be happening on a repair a few months old- please advise, and once again-- suggestions for a trusted mechanic in the Cleveland Ohio area would be appreciated.
