    Black grease around supercharger

    Hi Guys,

    I have had an issue with my '08 250x. Black grease would appear on the ins
    ide of the plastic cover that protects the supercharger belt, and all over the engine block. Nothing major, but i'd have splatters and it would build up if not cleaned. Is this normal to have a little grease splatter along this cover?

    I took it to the dealer and they said that they think
    grease came back through the seal on the drive shaft holder on the rear bulkhead. Does this make sense? Is it a major problem? I have had NO problems with my ski and want to keep it that way.

    Thanks!!
