Final Drive Oil Leak
« on: September 05, 2014, 10:34:33 pm »
Just arrived in Stuttgart from a 400 mile ride from the ferry at
Ijmuden to find oil under my final drive. Just had a 10,000 mile service

Luckily there's a Dealer 23km away so will see what he advises tomorrow

I'll keep you posted.

Later

Dave

Let's hope it is just the crush washer!   :821:

Hi Dave! Hope that is an easy fix. I don't even think the 10,000 mile service schedule calls for them to touch the drive oil though unless you asked them too??

My 2013 TT suffered a final drive oil leak at about 3500 km. It took replacement of the complete final drive assembly to rectify the problem as, it appears, the inboard seal (wheel side) is not serviced separately. Seems like an engineering blunder to me. I sure hope this seal lives a good long time. My nearest dealer is 700 km away so hauling the bike there, even for repair under warranty, is a costly endeavour.
I will be interested to hear how your repair turns out.

Yes do keep us posted.  I fear, unless it is the crush washer, you may have a serious problem. No other simple reason. For it to leak.

New final drive arrives Thursday!

I'm off to Titisee and the B500 so will only take RH turns fast as left side has oil on tyre. 

The joys of motorcycling, since I stopped riding Harley's I never got to check out Kawasaki and Yamaha dealers; now I own a Triumph maybe I can renew my Dealer contacts around Europe.

With 87,000 miles on my GTR I only needed GTO (Gas, Tires and Oil). A new final drive to fix a leak appears a bit extreme?  All the Triumph guys here say it is a most unusual fault. The BMW RT riders think it's normal! 

Thy IBA people here are desperate to get a picture of my bike with the final drive off for our magazine but I won't let them
