First, welcome to the forum, Artie.

We will need more information for this one.

You took the whole bike in, right?

What year? How many miles? Are you the original owner? And, where is it leaking from? Have you taken it back to the place that installed the tire to have them look at it? If so, what did they say?

I DID TAKE THE BIKE IN FOR TIRES,

THE SHOP THAT PUT THE TIRES ON WHEN OUT!

ITS A 2001, WITH 110,000 MILES

I'M THE SECOND OR THIRD OWNER

ITS LEAKING BETWEEN THE ROTOR AND THE DIFFERENTIAL HOUSING













BEAUTIFUL DAY

WOULD LOVE TO BE RIDING

It looks like there is only one seal on that side of the final drive. I think that big o-ring is to keep dirt out.

The shop may well have put something together wrong though. If you're good with tools, tear into it. If not, take it toanother shop. The final drive usually requires special tools.

There is a large seal that seals the ring gear/ hub assembly that could have been damaged. It's also possible that o-ring on ether the fill plug or the drain plug is leaking. If it started with tire change I would take it back. whatever you do don't run the final drive out of oil. Well your at it verify that they used honda's moly lub on the drive hub It's absolutely critical that the right grease was used.

Welcome Artie. It sounds like the large seal is leaking. Hard to see how a wheel change would do that, unless the wheel was being wrangled around too much.
