...no I didn't just have Taco Johns..but my 90 seems like it has! For a bit now it has been leaking oil I presume from the rear wheel. It seems to leak from the castle nut area but I dont reay know what it coud be. I did change the oil and that didnt seem to do anything. Is it something I should worry about? Anyone had a similar problem?

(It realy sucks because now my white walls are ugly walls)

The first thing to do is clean the hub up on both sides of the wheel so you can identifymore precisely where you are leaking from. They all drip a bit and white walls are notoriously difficult to keep clean. Are you leaking oil fast enough so that you have to add oil frequently? When you change the gear box oil does it smell of gasoline?

Probably it's the hub seal that is leaking but it never hurts to check before you start taking things apart.

yeah, it's your seal. wicked easy to replace. just take off the wheel and hub as one pop out the old seal with a screwdriver and pop in the new one and put your wheel back on. Done.
