I am constantly wiping grease off of the right side of my rear wheel. Could I be missing a seal or something thats causing this?

If you redid the rear splines and didn't use a 60% moly youir grease could-be liquefying and running out..and there is a seal between the rear drive shaft and the rear wheel hub..or it could be gear oil leaking out of the overflow vent or the drain plug.

Hey James....had the same problem & it turned out to be a bad seal in the final drive. It was just faster & easier during riding season to pick up another final drive online & swap it out.

...doesn't that hypoid gear oil just reek? phew!
