Gear shift leaking oil

Hi everyone,

My bike has started leaking transmission oil from the gearshift mechanism. Seems like a seal has gone inside and it is trickling down the selector lever. It has only just started doing this within the last 1k miles. The bike has about 80k miles on the clock, as far as I know the transmission has never been overhauled.

I am currently on the road and have no wish to even think about taking the tranny apart to replace the seal, or sending it off for this to be done.. I will put up with the leak for now and just keep an eye on the oil level. When I get home will have a look in more detail.

My question is.. Has this happened to anyone before? Is it a signal of worse things to come, or is it just simply a seal that has worn out?

Please tell me it is!

Sorry... Bike is a '79 R100RS (my first airhead )
