Noticed some leakage the other day and cleaned up the bike and rode an hour and didn"t notice anymore however after sitting overnight i notice this morning. When i lift the outer part of the rubber boot i dont see or feel any obvious oil but the stuff in the pic is obviously oil from the final drive. I am thinking is leaking out the rubber boot and finding its way along the seam, its such a small amount but with a 3 week trip coming up should i be concerned?

read a couple other posts, took the breather off the swingarm and I cannot blow any air through that, should it be free flowing or is it set to specific pressure before it will vent?

There was some discussion over on ADV about whether it has some sort of valve in. If it has it's very feeble. I'd piss it off and fit a proper vent tube. Just run the pipe up to near the steering head and point the end down.

The oil weep is most likely just poor application of the sealant. It's unlikely to get any worse. I wouldn't worry about it on your ride.

Thanks Pete
After a bit of tapping and poking i did get a feeble bit of air through it but my eyes were bulging out.

I will set about aquiring the banjonut pieces to vent as you suggest. In the meantime not worry and keep an eye on it.
