Without knowing where you are from it is hard to recommend a local
dealer. But these folks know the GasGas TXT inside and out.

Good luck

Sounds like a Head 'O' rings. But you better ask an expert.

I should be an expert at dealing with funky looking oil coming out of gearboxes by now .... but unfortunately I'm still working on it!!!

gearbox-waterpump axle seal fail
There is no such thing as bad weather! Only riding gear is improper or insufficient

When it hurts you know you're allive!

Gas Gas EC 300 Factory Racing 2012
- Ohlins TTX both front and rear
- Rekluse Core EXP 2.0 + Rekluse clutch basket
- Scalvini full exhaust system
- S3 Head
- Trusty adjustable PV cover

That was ultimate setup for me...
Now trying something else for a while...

Yep. water pump seals. Fairly easy to change and not expensive. Just be sure to flush all the coolant from the gearbox.
