Hi Khalid, wipe it off and see if it comes back, if it does go back to your servicing technician. Good luck

SOURCE: oil leaking around gear shifter

There should be an oil seal around the shifter shaft, least ways there was on the older models. I've replaced them by removing the shift lever and carefully prying the old seal out and then drive a new one in. Since I don't work on the newer machines, I can't tell you for sure but I doubt Harley has changed this.

Good Luck
Steve

Do you still feel the same feedback from gear lever when you change gear or it appear loose? It looks like a gearbox problem, maybe due to low gearbox oil something has broken inside the gearbox.

Hard to change gears in my v6 hyundia


First thing to check is oil-level in the gearbox. If far below the filler hole - refill and look for oil leaks around seals and in clutch housing.

If oil level is ok - it might need changing or when serviced recently, it might have been filled with the wrong oil.

Somewhere on the side of the gearbox there's a bolt with a seal ring. Usually this is the filler hole. Oil level check is simple, stick a finger in downwards. Should feel the oil level.

Gear boxes need the right oil viscosity and are quite sensitive - meaning changing gears gets difficult specially when cold.

Sometimes the R gear in my gear box dosen t work in my bmw ci 323 model 2000


hi. is this a manul shift trans?? if yes, then it is an easy fix. really it is. remove shifter knob and boot to gain access to the shifter assembly, you should be looking at the top of the transmission, remove 3 to 4 bolts holding the shifter in. slowly lift the shifter out of the trans, there should be a plastic "bushing" between the shfter and the shifting rod, its probably destoryed thats why reverse is hard to get, it adds more "throw" moving the shift rod of the trans more forward and firmly into gear.

Water leak/mixing with oil


The gasket on the gear shaft is dead. Water runs around it between the outer cover and the gearbox, and unfortunately the gear shaft needs to go all the way through them to get to the 'box. There should be a flat O-shaped gasket around the shaft, and that's leaking water into the oil, and out the side. This is a pretty tough job if you havn't got the right tools, so maybe rather take it to a workshop mate! Hope that helps!

Water leak/mixing with oil


change the seal behind the water pump impeller
the shifter shaft seal will stop leaking
if it continues to mix water and oil you will have to change the head gasket
