Hi guys im after a bit of advise to what im guessing is gonna be a big problem. I have a 2000 r6 with about 19k on the clock. While riding home this evening there was a sudden knock/bang from the front of the bike, it felt like the front wheel had went over a large stone but the road was clear. While slowing down to investigate i noticed my left boot covered in oil ! by the time i had stopped the whole back end of the bike was covered, with oil dripping everywhere. At this point i turned it off (still seemed to be running ok). When i take the fairings off to have a look is there anything abvious or a particular area that i should be looking. Also does the gearbox & engine share the same oil ?, i havent checked the dipstick level yet but it looked like an engines worth on the floor. Any advice would be welcome.
