Oil Leak?

Just was loading my RZR onto the trailer and decided to do a really good once over. As I was taking off the belt cover to blow it out I noticed a small (very small) pool of oil directly under the cover and dripping off the shaft that goes to the front wheels.

I thought oh god, the primary seal. Took the clutch cover off and its totally dry and oil free. I did install one of those seal saver things when I put a clutch kit in.

To complicate the diagnosis I just changed all the fluid prior to putting it on the trailer. Is it possible its not a leak and its just oil that leaked down from when I pulled the oil filter off? It wasnt much oil. Maybe an ounce if that.

I'd think if it were a primary seal there would be some oil in the cover, however maybe that seal saver thingy I put on is blocking it.

Re: Oil Leak?

Donít overthink it to much if you did just change the oil some left over oil could be running on the skid plate spray it off with soap and water check oil often next few rides look for leaks.
