    Got a small leak in the primary. Seal between the trans and primary. thinking of trying maxlife 20w50. Have valvoline 4t synthetic in there now

    And you think this will cure the leak?

    I'd fix the seal and put some good Spectro primary oil in there...JMO.

    I had a slight leak on my Dyna in the same spot. I tried some brand of ATF with "seal swell" to no avail. I finally determined my belt was too tight. With the properly adjusted belt the leak finally went away. But it wasn't overnight.

    :s Indeed, primary chain and too tight belt can take a toll on bearings and seals

    Pull the primary and replace the seals. James gasket kit is about $40. Its got all you need besides tools and some RTV, loctite, and will power. Might as well replace the shift shaft seal for $5 extra dollars whilst your in there.....
