Another same old leak
I haven't posted on this before because I have been waiting on the service department's to figure it out. Here is the deal. I am loosing oil from around the oil pan some where. Not tranny oil, not primary oil but engine oil. This is the work that has been done over the last several months.
Replace oil pan gasket. (I did find two loose bolts when I got home)
Replaced all inner and outer primary seals twice.
Replaced transmission seals once
Replaced VSS o-ring once.
Replaced bearing in inner primary and seal. (One cause of noisy starting)
Installed SE compensator.
Oil LOOKS like it is seeping from behind the front belt pulley and SEEMS to be blowing back onto the oil pan. Shifter shaft area is bone dry. Oil plug had a new o-ring and teflon on it when installed. That area seems dry all but some mist.
Mobile service dept wants me to bring it back to check it out. No problem there. You guys got any ideas? This has been the same scenario since the leak first started. Bike has 40k on it and has been a problem since about 15k. I use Mobile 1 V-Twin and change every 5k, Spectra 6 speed and change every 10k and Formula plus in the primary and change every 10k.
