Middle Shaft Leaking
I have a 2002 Yamaha VStar 1100 Custom. I have had it a little over 2 years. It is also my first bike.
I have recently developed an oil leak in the middle shaft area. I am not very mechanically inclined but think I may try to check it out myself. Has anyone had this issue? I am hoping it is a failed o-ring like my other leaks have been. Which I fixed. I have change the front and rear brake pads, an o-ring on the carburetor area, the bearings in my rear wheel. I am learning as I go. Do you think I should take this in to a shop or try this myself? I have tools and a motorcycle jack. Does anyone have any tips? Do I get to this by removing the rear wheel and drive shaft and working my way in? Any info helps.
