Smile Shout out to Piro!!

I've been living in fear of trying to install the front bevel gear case, made worse when Piro said he had spent three hours and much blood, and he still didn't have it in. Then all of a sudden, he's riding! Quick PM, he says, "loosen the bolts and drop the swingarm," and I'll be darned if I didn't have the case in within about 15 minutes. THANK YOU!!

DMAG, I couldn't find anything in the Verses, but maybe that could be posted as a "helpful, insurance-friendly hint" on how to reinstall that thing?

Cindy -

There are those that get the front bevel back in without pulling the rear wheel.

I tried for 5 minutes, saw how easy it would be if I pulled the rear wheel. 30 minutes later, front bevel and rear wheel back on. No frustration.

On this subject mine is leaking oil out the bottom. Is that usually a sign it needs to be replaced or just the gasket? Its a small amount. Other than checking the oil am I risking a major malfunction while riding down the road?

Glad you got it back together and, glad I could be of help.

You're leaking oil out of the front bevel gear case? Can you pinpoint the spot? Probably just need to replace the gasket (which, of course, means pulling the case), but you can do that with the bike in the frame. Check where the leak is and holler back to the Forum - someone here can tell you for sure what's going on.
