So i was bored, nearest 'good' road is over 30 min and couldn't be bothered so i washed the baby (my gs500) My point is i have gick (oil) on the left - clutch side - engine casing, just above the gear shift. So decided to clean it up Q. How neurotic are you about cleaning your baby? :?: AND Should you treat it like a machine...VROOM! OR a handbag ("how pretty) :?: And if you know should i have this gick prob, it's only on that side and after i clean it, it drips just above the gear shift and makes it gicky! service blokes have never said anything ON the good side, it looks much prettier - hehehe pretty!!!!
