So, it was discovered the rear driver's Nivo is now leaking - majorly as of Tuesday afternoon. Just in time for snow...
Looks like I'll be replacing both and a right drive axle seal.

Nivo's and axle bolts ordered from FCP Euro.
Will pick up the seals locally as FCP's website and their guy didn't agree. Situations like that I'd just rather not order instead of playing return roulette.

Seems everyone has a listing for the driver's side axle seal, but the passenger's apparently is more exotic. May stop over at NAPA on the way to dropping the motorcycle off at its winter home to get a part number.

Here is where we're at on drive shaft - leak on Nivo is very similar in amount dripping:
