Strange trans leak, or maybe not.
While changing all of the fluids on the bike last week (03 LT) I noticed a small amount of gear lube leaking from the front swingarm boot, okay I figured I will need to replace the output seal this winter. I put regular gear lube in thinking, okay not as slippery as synthetic, might not leak as much. That proved to be true, sort of, but now what is leaking is the gear lube mixing with what I can best descibe as something that looks like white lube. The small leak comes mixed with a grayish grease, still smells of gear lube, but it's a grayish color. Could this be a bearing grease mixing with the gear lube.
I called Bob's asking the service manager the question but he hasn't gotten back to me. The leak isn't much, it runs fine, can I drive till winter? What's the grayish substance? Any help will be appreciated!
