Re: Rear Main Seal leaking?
Just as a followup to my service issues, I realized this was beyond both my skills and tool collection so I took the bike to the dealer. I'm fortunate that the same tech who's been working on my BMWs since 1985 fixed my 99 KLT. Here's what he wound up doing: Install new rear main seal, new clutch assembly and associated gaskets, install new slave cylinder, bleed clutch, replace transmission seals, two bearings; replace input drive shaft; replace transmission gear oil.
While I was focusing on the rear main seal, he found additional problems once he removed the trans. I for sure would never have spotted those.
Next spring when I uncover the bike I'll be ready to roll. As much as I hated writing that check, the alternative was worse.
