Thats not a pretty picture! Another seal to change! Fortunately its easy to get at. Interesting to see how many viewers can identify that part, I had to look 3 or 4 times...

Ya think? lol !

I was thinking the same thing looking under there. But believe it or not this wet looking black stuff was road grime Soaked with antifreeze dripping off the top of the head.

I have a bunch of degreaser and engine cleaner so its going to get a big bath soon. I am sure I will find all the leaks at that time. Carbs are getting cleaned tomorrow.

So what are we looking at? Is it the clamp end of the shift lever binding against something?

Yeah, I was previously mentioning shifter problems (different post) .

I looked around and found the problem.

No more picking up after shifting nor pushing down after shifting. Problem solved real easylike.

Nice to have an easy one once in awhile. Especially that one, saved a LOT of work! Things are turning up for you!

So this is a metaphorical representation on part of the motorcycle in indicating your past problems, shown here as the "grime," are now over and being easily washed off. Then youll be free to shift into "high gear" and go forward.:clapper:

ran429, did you change the shifter shaft seal? If so, did you find that the new seal went in too easy. I've found this to be the case on a couple of 1200's I've worked, the seal was so loose on one that I had to use a sealer around the outside of the seal to keep it from leaking.
