Question Final drive temp?

I check it every stop - just touch it with my hand. It's warm - maybe just a bit warmer than the hand.
What is the recommended operting temperature of the final drive? What is the limit to worry?

Take care!

if its just warm to the touch you are doing good and wouldn't worry about it.
