Question

Running in my new tls and ive done about 400km and i just noticed one of the cans has oil gum around the end of it.This normal?

Buy treaded knee sliders,they give better grip in the wet.

Cool

Maxis,

Is it on the bottom of the can? the side with the chain? Then its probably chain oil/wax getting slung up on the can.

If I put a heavy coat of chain wax on mine it gets all over my can and rims.

Just try switching to a different chain oil/wax. I dont know which is best (would probably start a war over it) but there were some threads on chain wax...you may want to check those.

No it was oil on the inside of the pipe so it`s not from the chain.Seams to be getter better the more km i get on it still only have 900k`s on it.Now im just hoping the gearbox gets better cause at the moment it`s shocking.Time will tell
