Re: Final Drive leaking........again
I talked to some of the folks here on the board and they talked me off the ledge, thanks John and Earnie. After seeking some advice, I called the shop and stopped the work. Picked up the bike up today along with the new tire. The tech said there was oil around the bell housing but they never got anything off of the bike other than plastic and rear sets (?) so not sure what he was talking about, but said there was oil around the bell housing, Wonder if he was talking about the outside, so thinkin he may have seen some oil from a recent oil change that I got sloppy with. I dont know. I plan on checking all the fluids and topping off as required. Put some dye in the final and then to watch what comes out later on. In the mean time, gonna ride, heck summer is sorta kind of finally here. Well for a day or so at least. Then at some point I will ask for some help from some guys here on the board to either do the work, with my help, or do a full blown tech day and dive into the thing and get what ever needs to be fixed fixed. As for the steering damper, got the bike home, rocked on the back wheel, slow turn of the front both ways, nothing. Quick turn both ways and I could feel the damper kick in, so I dont know what that was about either. Glad I didn't order one up!!
New front tire will go on and the warranty process with Avon will begin. See how that goes.
