    Re: Gearbox oil leaked into primary case??

    ok, I've phoned this morning and asked the question, apparently it getting through the 6th gear shaft oil seal.I've also been given some advice from a friend of mine who is also a mechanic and he has said it could be from the crankshaft seal and coming in from the engine which would be a much more serious problem if not noticed. I've let them know this too and they have assured me they will check every possibility before handing it back, but they are confident its the 6th gear seal.I just have to trust them now and keep my fingers crossed.

    I wonder if they mean seal 13? other cause could have been the main engine seal.

    The what? What did they say when you asked for a part number? There's about three inches of fresh air and the drive pulley between the two separate cases so where is this mysterious seal?

    Possible but unlikely. Easy to find out if you check your engine oil level.

    I wouldn't. My advice to you is to collect your bike and get it out of there ASAP. Why not take it to your mechanic friend?

    True but it also covers Twin Cam models from 2014, so way before M8 or I would not have posted it.

    Ha ha ha ha! Interesting that the part it recommends to be changed on the Twin Cams is the sprocket shaft oil seal. The sprocket shaft diameter is the same on all TC crankshafts from 2007 onwards so what's changed?

    Still waiting to hear where this '6th gear shaft oil seal' is as quoted by the dealer ...
