Default Might need a good Suzuki dealer with a great mechanic

I just might get a chance to use my Vstrom warranty.

I have something leaking. Might be oil, might be fluid from my clutch slave. Have not had a chance to verify the source yet.

The clutch slave is no big deal. They went bad often on the 02 and 03 Vstroms, so I changed the seal many times. 04 and up are a improved design, but just as easy and cheap to fix. I won't even use warranty for it, easier and faster to do it myself.

If it is oil it most likely is coming from my engine sprocket seal, which is a really big deal. I need to find somebody who has some experience with DL, TL, or SV 1000 engines because I just don't trust my local dealer for such a big repair.

If it is the sprocket seal, I will wait until fall to get it done.

Hope it's the clutch slave! Sprocket seal probably means cracking the cases, yes?

My racing buddy had a guy do some stuff to his SV650, said he was very knowledgeable and thorough. Let me see if I can get his contact info.

I have heard good reports about "Honda of Jackson" but have no personal experience.

Are you sure it's the seal, and not just a build up of chain lube dripping off in the heat?

Regarding reputable Suzuki service techs... I got nothin'.

Definitely not chain lube. It is making the chain wet and spraying on the back of my saddlebags.

Eventually I will take the cover off and then I will know for sure.

check your fluid window on the clutch mastercylinder to see if it's low. if that is your leak you better carry some extra with you. would suck to lose your clutch on the road due to low fluid. guess you should have bought a ktm adventure!

So, you have a factory installed chain oiling device... and you want it removed? I wish my bike had one of those.

Some people... damn.
