Final drive oil seal
I was riding across Germany about 3 weeks ago. As you may be aware they are pretty open minded about speed limits on their autobahns. Well, two up and loaded it was quiet so I gave the GT a free rein whenever possible. ie 140mph+. Anyway, when we stopped that evening in Holland I spotted a little weeping around the "hole", wiped it off... no sign in the 1000 miles or so since then. However, I guess the seal might be on it's way out?
The question. It looks easy enough to replace, but does it push up against a shoulder/seat or does it just "float". ... so do I need to measure the depth it sits at before I pull it out. I imagine it's not too tricky to replace without the special tool in the DVD... or do I need to make one of these too!
Any advice welcome... Thanks
