2010 Silver Fury
Hello all, I noticed a small oil spot at the rear left of my bike. After investigating, I tracked the source to where the drive shaft meets the drive gear At the rear wheel. It looks like grease is coming out from inside the gears, and being spun out. It’s a dark olive green grease that hardens when cold. I have cleaned it all out as best I could, and will keep checking to see if more comes out. I’ve only had the bike about 3 months, and I’ve put about 3,000 miles on it so far. I didn’t notice this before now, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it wasn’t there. I’m thinking it could be final drive oil that was overfilled and is leaking up through the gears? I have looked through the service manual and can’t find any other place where there is grease or oil in this area. Is this a seal or O ring that’s malfunctioning? Or would this be “normal” if the final drive oil was overfilled? She rides just fine, no issues there. And I checked the final drive oil, and it is filled to where it should be, and looks clean (I had the Honda dealership do some routine maintenance when I first got her, and this was one of the fluids they changed.) Any help would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!!
