I see a small puddle of oil straight under the wheel (bike on center stand). It looks like the seal for the outgoing axle has given up.

Any tips or howtos for this?
Anything else that should be checked when doing the repair? The plan is to follow the Haynes workshop manual for this but more information would be highly appreciated.

There is a crush washer in that assembly. Like the manual states, get 2 of them in case you overtighten the first one :).

quite easy fix, I followed the manual and replaced the shaft seal and the big oring. Took the opportunity to grease the shaft spline and clean stuff up. Just be careful not to put dirt into the housing when cleaning up, the needle roller bearing in the assembly is sensitive.080B5F9A-DD7C-42F3-8933-52AD5835D782.jpeg 45301217-CB35-4FAF-8965-C7824D43263C.jpeg
