    Unhappy 2011 R1200RT Final Drive Leak

    Upon inspection of my 2011 R1200RT with 21,000 miles I found a stain on the tire and rim and oily residue at the rear of the final drive and next to the drain plug. Could this be leaking seal or am I looking at major problem? I don't see any play on rear rim. Bike still under warranty. Note that the dependent part in picture is on right (couldn't rotate picture)

    Most likely just a seal. If it is under warranty you are covered either way.

    Looks like an external seal. Easy 15 min job taking less than $40 in parts. Should be no residual damage to the FD. If under warranty, then no sweat. If you want to do it yourself, then Jim Von Baden has a DIY thead on ADV Rider.

    Still under warranty. Having it fixed this week along with an erratic fuel gauge (has float not fuel strip)

    Mine too;

    My GSA had same leak, outer seal and a few months later, the FD Bearing was with to much play and got replaced. Just a note, the seals leaks CAN be a forewarning of a bearing vibration and failing! Keep close watch for rear wheel play. The outer seal is a very quick in/out job for any dealer to perform. The bearing too when mine went south, I waited about two hours for that job.
