I have fluid from the area where the four bolts hold the final drive (GL 1200 I).I checked the fluid and it is completely full. I suspected the seal in the FD for the shaft. Seeing the FD is full could it be coming from the vent. It seems to only happen when the bike sits overnight. Also I saw where these FD over heat with the factory fluid in them. Is there an additve or an alternative fluid for this. Thank you for your replies.

Even with a bad seal the gear lube will run back into the final drive unit.

but when your riding, it will run dry and burn up the FD.
