Parked bike & returned ~30" later to find oil leaking onto rear wheel/tire and puddling on pavement.

I believe one or both seals in fd failed.

After coffee & some breakfast will be going at fd.
To find the source of this fluid leak.

Been searching/reading up on kbike's fd removal & repair.
Here seeking any tips/tricks/knowledge to help prevent me from exacerbating the problem.

Any and all advise is greatly appreciated.

Troy

See if you can find the exact point its coming out. I had a leak last year and then had to replace the big bearing this year and I think the two were connected. All seems ok now.

Thx again,

Need to clarify if its a Monolever or Paralever? 2 valve K will be Monolever, 4 valve will be Paralever. The video is for a Paralever.

It's a mono-lever on a 85 K100RT 2V
