This spring I changed my back tire and whie I was at it I cleaned and greased the shaft and differential. Since then All has been well. Today I took The wing out for a ride to my dads about 12 miles from home. When I was there I notided that my differential was covered in grease and that it was leaking down onto the rim and tires. On inspection I noted thatit seemed to be leaking from the top of the hub.



Now the bike has sat for the past 5 days and this morning it was in the mid forties whenI took it for the ride. My first thought was the possibility that the shocks were leaking, but I confirmed that that is not the case.



Any idea's or advise here.

Check the diff level, and wipe it off good. Could've burped out the breather, if you slightly over-filled the diff. Was it on the sidestand, or centerstand when you filled it? The slightest bit extra will blow out the breather on my 15, and make a hell of a mess.

Richard, you might check the shock to be sure it isn't leaking and dripping down on the differential. I've had that happen.

When you changed the rear oil was the bike on the center stand or the kick stand? that could make a difference. And if the oil is foaming or overfilled it could be dribbling out the vent.I use regular 80/90 hypoid oil, its a gl5 rated oil, I wouldn't use a synthetic oil as it may affect the seal.,,
