This is more of a gripe. Replaced 1st rear seal few weeks back. Now, as if on schedule, the front starts leaking. Ordered seal (always order at least 2) and they congratulated me for being the millionth person to order one.....

Maybe we could come up with some kind of class action deal against kawi... like Toyota.... Any lawyers here?

Check your rear mount bolt and bracket bolts. Its been noted that they do get loose and because of how the front driveline has no joints, the engine pivets on the front mount and applys pressure to the bearings and seals taking them out sooner. This isn't the reason for all the seal failures, but it is for some.
