after checking my coil i noticed oil leaking from the bearing between the brake caliper and chain case. is it normal to have some leakage after 925 miles? checked chain case oil level and it's at the add line. should i add oil and ride this weekend?
I certainly don't think that your situation is 'normal'. Maybe the oil is leaking past the O-ring seal in the chaincase(#30in the diagram below) causing it to come out the back side of the chaincase?? Tha't my initial though....
I believe that this has been a problem on cats from day one?? I have a 97 ZL and a 2008 ZR 800 and both of them have slow leaks from the top of the chain case. I would ride it this weekend. Unless the leak is real bad. The dealer may not even be able to fix it completly. My dealer has always put a john deere bearing in there and sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. Either way don't let it bother you as long as you make sure there is some oil in there. The level only goes down a little in my experience.
