Changed the oil in the Carc (engine and gearbox too) several weeks ago. Now getting a leak of fluids onto the rear wheel. No indication of oil migration down the carc, so gear box et al eliminated. Also the rear end feels a bit squirrely under acceleration. I originally put that down to oil on the wheel but it does it in the straights as well.
I let the carc oil out and it was not fresh looking at all, rather it was a dull grey colour.
Taking the rear wheel off indicated a slight dampness/ leak from the seal, me thinks it would come out more quickly under load as both recent test rides of a kilometer out and back was enough to make the rim and tyre quite wet.
The 1100 has 45,000 kms on it. I have had her for 2 years and put on 20,000kms. Oils have been changed every 5-6,000 kms (bit anal I know). This recent episode has come on very quickly.
I assume once the bearing goes it deteriorates quickly? I cannot feel any play however when I try to rock the rear wheel
Question; Is this a home job or one requiring special tools and expertise.
(note: I try to do most of my own maintenance but lack experience and confidence it matters such as this.)
