I have it and never powerwashed or washed at all. Its just moisture as far as I can tell. On below zero days its not frozen. I will pull chaincase cover after the season is over anyways.

It's condensation, it's worse if you store your sled in a heated garage. How can water get through the lower bearing if oil is not getting out?

dont ask me thats just what they said looked at it last nite with a mirror and it ahs a slight amount of oil on the outside of the bearing. There is no puddle of oil under the sled, maybe it is only when the sled is in motion when the water gets into it

It's called condensation. Every time you ride your sled, the oil warms up and cools off. It's actually worse if you leave your sled outside. Mainecat is right.... Shock oil looks the same after one season.
