ill clean the stuff off the only reason i did it was to temporarily fix it while i was on the trail so i wouldnt overheat the thing.
It wasn't a fix of any kind. Plugging the hole will not stop the seal from leaking coolant, but it will stop it from escaping to the outside before it pushes past the oil seal, contaminates your oil, peels off your clutch linings, and destroys your engine. Other than that, there's nothing wrong with it.
Check your oil for signs of a milky appearance, an overall gray look, or actual coolant at the bottom of the sump/frame next to the drain plug. If it was an oil leak, check the radiator for oil floating at the top.
... i would like to just replace the whole shabang. got any partnumbers?
You have to do some of the work:http://shop.thumpertalk.com/oem.asp
