Massive engine oil leak after rear tire replacement on '84 GL1200 Aspencade
Yeah, I'm shaking my head after reading that message title, too!
I recently finished changing the rear tire on a 1984 GL1200 Aspencade. (Sheesh, so much work!)
When I buttoned things up and took it for a ride, I noticed a large amount of oil coming out of the engine. It appears to be coming from the output shaft. When putting the drive shaft back in place, there were a few false starts to get it lined up with the u-joint in there. So I guess I dinged things up, or pushed the seal out of place?
Can I get to the output shaft seal without pulling the engine? I'm wondering if I nudged the seal out of place, and I just need to nudge it back?
