    Well.......after I thoroughly cleaned the back of the motor off, I could "clearly" see a drool from the weep hole in the block at the slave. Didn't even have to run the bike. Wiped it down, waited again and sure enough another drool. Originally I thought it was motor oil because of the discoloration. What I failed to discover that even though I flushed my clutch fluid a couple of times, it clearly did not remove all of the brown /yellow contamination in the slave and lines themselves. The clutch fluid weep had taken on a motor oil look. I'm still not convinced that the u-joint seal is not leaking, but after I cleaned it as well, cannot see anything coming from that area. Time will tell here. When I changed the slave yesterday, it still had brown /yellow crud in it, even though my site glass on the master cylinder was clean and clear. Oil leaks can be a bit of a challenge at times. A slight drool or weep down low can actually travel "up" due to who-knows-what kind of turbulence is behind the motor, underneath the bike, making tracing it difficult. Throw some brake dust, road grime, etc, and the oil drip color can vary greatly.....

    After a few days of letting it sit I see no signs of a drool. Clean as a whistle now. Fingers crossed!!
