Default Re: Tranny Main seal shaft leak?

you sure it's the sprocket? Its not coming from one of the mounting bolts underneath and then along the box and dripping from it at the end? ( because the bike is on the side stand?)

My cone box used to leak from the studs, till I removed them, cleaned the threads thoroughly with a cotton bud, then put the studs back on with loctite 272. done this about 4 or 5 years, never leaked since. I can leave the bike parked for months and not a drop falls.

Almost certain mate. It's leaking when in use spraying on the chain. It's not the sprocket main seal I believe the 1" one over the shaft. I'm going to have a look later.
