It came from running my chain too tight.
You just have to replace the seal. Its not hard at all.

Push the seal in evenly all the way around. Its about a 10 minute project. Good luck.

causes the seal to get enough pressure to seal up correctly.
If you didn't replace the tab washer when you replaced the
sprocket (many people don't) it could be that you just didn't
get the sprocket tight enough due to "wrinkles" in the washer.
I've had this happen to me and all I had to do was replace
the washer and retorque the nut..

All I had to do was get a new $7 oil seal, pry out the old one and install the new one. The leak must have only been going on for a few minutes because it had well over a quart of oil still in the motor. The back of the bike was covered with oil and grime so the cleanup was a pain in the ass.
BTW, the oil seal isn't held in by the pressure of the countershaft sprocket nut. There's a metal cover held on by 2 bolts that goes over the oil seal and keeps it in place.

I would assume it should sit as fap back as possible but I can not say for sure with 100% accuracy. I changed mine a couple years ago so I really dont remember.
What caused the seal to go bad in the first place? Was the chain too tight? I never did hear you say.

> goes over the oil seal and keeps it in place.
My bad.. my experience was with a 98YZ and I assumed they were
the same. Thanks for the correction..

I also will help out the little o ring under the spacer by lubricting the splines on the cs with some silicone before installing the new spacer and o ring.
