Hey Y'all! The bike is running quite well now (well enough that I am going to buy a techlusion box to try to eliminate surge, but that's another thread!)

I have ordered a gear position indicator switch and used swing arm to remedy some of the strong-arm wrenching I did rushing too much over the summer. I have been invited to ride to Alaska so want to make sure the old girl is truly solid...And jeepers that looks that really easy job compared to the transmission/clutch stuff.

HOWEVER...I do have one nasty little issue...
Seems the transmission is leaking when I am doing my low speed handling practice, which is riding the clutch and leaning over a lot at low speed. It seems to not leak, or at least not noticeably, during normal riding. Any suggestions of where it may be leaking? The oil is visible on the front part of the engine under the transmission. It quite visible since I used that bright red Shockproof Heavy.
