Hello all, I own an '03 GSXR 750 and I noticed today that i have oil dripping from the bottom of the fairing. after taking the fairing off and inspecting , there is oil coming from the gear selector shaft and some black tarlike substance that has covered the right side of the water pump cover. I assume its the water pump ? a friend of mine tipped the bike on its side the other day to see how heavy it felt. didnt drop it though. Would or should the oil leak through the gear selector shaft like that ? and what the hell is that tar stuff?
the bike has 12000 k's on it , regular oil changes and has never spent a night outside. there is no decent mechanics where i live and two and a half hours to Kamloops where i bought it. I know from reading here that some of you are excellent wrenchers so i thought i would inquire. thanx in advance. I have enclosed a pic. not the best pic but you can see the black stuff on the right side of the cover. dan
