Counter Shaft Seal - What is it?
Posted November 18, 2005 - 10:32 PM
So, after doing searches, I've removed my front sprocket in hopes of finding it. I still have not clue what it is. Pictures would be extremely helpful. Does anyone have one and have details as to how to change it exactly?

My guess is that you have played around with your front sprocket!
You have not tightened the CS sprocket nut up tight enough. It is really a two person job with one standing on the rear brake.
If it is not tight enough, you get some free play in the shaft and oil leaks out from behind it out of the seal. There is an o ring in there too.
Tighten it up properly and the leaking should stop. It did for me and I haven't had any leaking since. It happened about 2500kms ago so there is hope.
I don't know how you would change the seal and o ring out if the leaking doesn't stop, but my guess is that your manual is your best friend.
