    R65 Real differential seal

    Looks like the seal, that seals on the shoulder of rear wheel is leaking on this R65. From what I can tell, looking at the part fishe, that's about the only place inside the wheel that would leak. Do I need to pull the spline to replace the seal?

    I spoke too soon. The leak is around the brake lever shaft.

    I tried to delete this thread,

    Thanks for reading it anyway.

    The first post can't be deleted by the OP. But we can leave this up. It might give others something to consider when investigating leaks and to consider looking around.

    Glad you tracked it down to the brake lever...I think the other seal takes some special tools and approaches.
