Gear Box seal leaking or bike is sulking:?
Got to the top of Gibraltar Rock today, and after parking up noticed a large smattering of oil over the right hand side of my rear wheel, all over the lower propshaft gaiter and over the bevel box casing.....ah!
Immediate idea springs to mind that my gearbox output seal has gone, as I have only in the last two weeks had the propshaft,gearbox seal and bevel seals replaced.
Got the wheel off etc, and found no oil inside the wheel hub, final drive oil level was fine.....however, I had lost 400ml of gearbox oil.
After wiping it all down and filling up with some of Repsols finest gear oil and carrying a spare 2 litre bottle, I set off for Malaga and a possible BMW shop there-abouts......however, now I have arrived the bike has not leaked again that i can see an the gearbox level has not dropped.
Was my bike sulking in the heat ( 38 degrees ) or could it have managed to reset a leaking seal by itself somehow...or is it worth visiting the BMW dealer and going for the full strip and check before moving on.
