00 YZ426 Driveshaft oil leak HELP MEEEEEEE!
Posted 07 August 2004 - 06:01 PM
It's the oil seal behind the drive sproket, it leaks after i have ridden it or started it. Anyone know what i have to do to change this. I have the service manual, but it don't tell if i have to take the engine case apart to change it.

EDIT: From that picture it looks like you're actually missing the steel cover that holds the seal in place. See the place where the bolt that holds it is? Its just underneath the sprocket. So you will probably want to pick one of them up to, its probably the reason it started leaking in the first place as alot more dirt would of come in contact with the seal than it should of.

Hey yz426onNOS. Is that you in your avatar pic? If so how long did it take you to build yourself up that big. You're by far bigger than anyone i've ever saw before. As for me, im fat without a muscle.
Anyone else who reads this have a better way to change the seal on the drive shaft?

1) screw 2 self tapping screws into the seal 180deg apart
2)using 2 pairs of vicegrips, pull the seal out.
The screwdriver method would work ok in this situation because you can remove the sleeve.
Reinstall using a socket. Make sure you get the new seal square.

You really got nos on your bike? If so how is it n where did you get the kit from?
Not yet but in the next couple months I will. I'll be going with the Boondocker kit. It is a lot safer then running NOS in the tank. Here is there website, check it out.
