Hello! I need your advise, please.
During one of my rides i found out that oil is leaking heavily from the rear drive.
About 300 km remained till the house, so i had to pour oil along the way. Later on the way i started filling blows in the back and crunching while driving (when pressing lever clutch). Firts, i thought that the problem was with one of the ball bearings, but overall motocycle was riding as usual.
When i was at home, i took off the rear drive, the shaft was swaying (playing). I will replace the bearings (14, 22 on the schema) and the oil seal (17) that was leaking. But i am not sure, that the blows and the cruching were provoked by the bearing (the bearing did not seem to have any defects).
After I decided to drain the oil from the gearbox, and I found that the oil was very dirty (although it was cleaner at the last replacement) and there is metal dust on the magnetic plug. I suppose that there is some friction in the gearbox.
I took off the gearbox, but on preliminary inspection I have not found out shafts gap or anything. And here i am thinking if it is worth to disassemble further and get the shafts with gears to find something that could provoke the oil dirtiness or simply to replace something for prevention measures?
Or maybe it is normal for V11?
At the same time, I decided to eliminate all possible leaks, because I have the box all the time wet (from all sides) but i cannot find where from it is leaking.
I have found an instruction to eliminate leaks, but except the 2-b point there (about bolts), i did not understood what is ment there, just in general. Can anyone in the diagram indicate with arrows what places of the box are mentioned there?
I found another useful, closed topic http://www.v11lemans.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=20021
