    Well I have both. Both have been there for a number of years. Both cost a lot of money to have done and I'm wondering if I just keep replenishing the fluids needed will it really matter?

    Which gearbox? Steering?


    Which rear seal? Engine main?

    Leaks are problematical. They rarely slow down or stop unless the fluid that is leaking is all gone :rolleyes: (HD motorcycles) :whoops:

    If you are vigilant and don't care about the mess in the driveway and the condition of your undercarriage, you could potentially go a great distance.
    I would not operate the vehicle, if it were mine, in remote areas. A sudden failure of the remaining sealing properties of the ailing components would be very disappointing.

    Whatever it is but a small leak becomes a big one. So please repair it in time before you stuck on the roadside.
