mhevezi Posted March 25, 2016 Share Posted March 25, 2016 I noticed a drop of oil on the floor under my new (2900mi) bike. Hmmmm... maybe it's just excessive chain lube. Wiped everything down- didn't notice any areas of potential leaks and went back to my business. This was about a month ago. Noticed on a few rides a bit of an 'oily smell.' Hmmmm.. didn't see any more drops- could be chain lube on that GIANT catalytic converter. On with my day. Well, last night, I took a closer look at the bike and noticed the left, foot-peg mount was wet- VERY wet with oil. I haven't lubed the chain recently and well, it looks like the output shaft seal to the front sprocket is the culprit. No biggie- just a warranty claim. Bummer, but worse things could happen. Or, I could just keep topping the oil up and have a free auto-luber! I'll let you know what the dealer has to say! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
