Oil Leak around drive sproket!!!!!

4 posts in this topic

I noticed a small oil leak around my drive sproket when the bike (99wr) is warmed up and running. Obviously it's a problem, but how hard is it going to be to fix this dilemma.

There nothing to it. I just changed mine. Pull of the countershaft and behind it is basically a dirt cover that is bolted down with 2 screws. Take that off and pry the seal out. Be sure and lube the shaft :Dbefore you slip the new seal on. I think what caused mine to fail was keeping my chain too tight.

I beleive that this has been a problem on the WR's, but it's supposed to be caused from the chain being run too tight, or that's what Yamaha claim ?
