fluid leak from u joint

Postby HALBUDD » Fri Oct 01, 2010 10:35 pm



I have a 1985 aspy that had to have the front u joint replaced as old one was bad.But now I am seeing a leak coming out of dust cover at dust boot on front u joint. I have checked the fluid it is not oil smells more like rear end fluid. I have looked in goldwing book for any seals between rear drive and front u joint Not sure of the right seal any ideas would help . THANKS.

Most likely is item 29 OIL SEAL (27X43X7) 91261-ME9-005

Possibly from being disturbed while the shaft was out.

Thanks again tricky I have the bike back from mech. said he did not want to the backend off with out having another seal. I will see about getting another seal for it and put it in. Maybe the place I had the u joint fixed did not put a new seal in or forgot to put one in Something for me to look at.Iam hoping to hold off till winter when i plan on doing a lot off fix up to both bikes thanks again for your help.
