    Found another leak

    Few weeks ago found one of my rocker box gaskets leaking and have since fixed that. Today, got home from Laconia and parked the bike, went out later to put it back in the garage and saw a small spot on the driveway under the primary. Began looking and there is a lot of grime behind the primary. Looks like my shift shaft seal went out. Not too bad, I will have had the bike ten years come this August. Just replaced original battery at the beginning of the season, then a rocker box gasket and now a shift shaft seal.

    I have a leak and I have nailed it down to the cable coming out of clutch cable coming out of the tranny cover when I try to snag it up it just turns so I think the threads are going inside the tranny cover or the threads as it enters The transmission cover our broken I don't know what's more prevalent but I use a red colored transmission gear oil and it always gets wet along the frame rail and I thought it was my timing cover on the engine but it was not it runs down the cable. Come this winter I'll pull the cover off and investigate. Glad you found your spot that was leaking sometimes it's a real mystery to try and find the source.

    " Found Another Leak"

    Every time I read this title I think it's Trump tweeting!

    For the Age of your Ride finding a Leak here and there is bound to happen .. Had to Replace the Shaft Seal on the Victory a little after 3 Years Old but was a relatively simple fix ..
