Final Drive leaks

Post by blindmonkey » Thu May 05, 2011 8:18 pm

I have an 78 Honda Goldwing 1000, and the final drive leaks a little. I can't see it leak but the rim gets oily. I clean it off and i go for a 30 min ride and the rim is oily again. I was thinking or just replacing the final drive, but I figure I would shoot out a post to see if anyone knows how to maybe fix it, maybe it could just be a bad gasket that could be replace. So if anyone had this problem before I would like some input how I can fix this or it cant be fixed.

There are seals that can be replaced in the final drive but finding them might be a problem.
