2012 FLTRU Transmission leak
So I noticed the scooter has developed an oil leak......Took me a little bit to figure out it was the transmission.......and then with a little more "looking"......I found the two lower transmission housing 1/4" allen fasteners loose.....not just a little.....these buggers had backed out multiple turns. These are the fasteners that also hold the exhaust hanging bracket. They are extremely hard to access......looks like to gain full access you would have to remove the exhaust. Soooo, what I found was a 1/4" allen wrench that was for my garbage disposal (its angled and offset) was just right to get in there and snug these babies up. Leak gone.
My question is........
How long are those fasteners? Can I back them out and put loctite on them to prevent this from happening again? Can I do it without removing the exhaust?
Thanks in advance
