Default oil on rear brake

Hi Guys

My girlfriend has a 2005 M50 which she loves, however the rear brake faded so much it wouldnt stop the bike. No big deal, I pulled the tire off to change the pads and they are covered in gear oil.

I cleaned them with brake clean and we rode about another month, no brakes again. Again when I pulled the hub I found gear ol on the pads. I have the oil seal and two O rings on order to repair.

Just wondering if any one else has had this issue?

It appears that the oil migrates across the shaft and gets into the brake side.

Not sure on this but it sounds familiar.
Burnchassis over at the Maraurder M50 Secret Hideaway on motorcycle-journal.com
did a huge expose of the M50 rear end and final drive. You might check there.
Also, he posted great videos on Youtube
