This has a lot to do with a big mistake on my part: I incorrectly measured the level of transmission oil, over filled, and had subsequent leak out of weep hole . A friend, and excellent mechanic on these bikes, found the overfill after tearing all parts down and installing seals and new clutch parts. He adjusted the level correctly. I felt pretty dumb since everything was now back together and he did such a great job on everything else. Anyway, I tried some additive to maybe get the leak to 'roll back in place' and it helped a bit but...... I have a slight slippage on the clutch after about 10,000 miles and suspect that it's related
Now, am I correct to reasonably conclude that some of this oil is making its way forward and licking the clutch plate?
It looks like the only reasonable thing to do is pull back the transmission and replace that seal. If so should I do anything on the clutch side? This slip has been quite minor and I never let the slip continue (5th gear with spirited pass it's noticed).
Could a clutch adjustment be the real problem? (I wish!)
Contact my buddy again? No, he's been such a grand help thus far that I don't want to further impose so I think that I will keep this little project to myself; pay my dues, as it were!. I have greased the splines and had success so I really don't think "digging a little deeper" will be a huge challenge.
Thanks for any thoughts on the subject. - Bob
