Question about 2000 Moto Guzzi Sport 1100 i
Is it possible to change all the seals (gear shift
Clutch pushrod and final driveshaft) without removing the gearbox/engine from the the frame? Just removing the swingarm and driveshaft to gain access. This is on a Sport 1100. Mine started leaking oil today and upon closer inspection all the seals look a bit suspect to me. The main offender being the drive shaft seal. Trying to chenge the rear seal with the box in-situ is fraught with problems. Apart from the accessibility issue it is difficult to get an sort of sel hook in to pry out the seal without damaging the face of the speedo drive worm that the seal runs on. Alo in many, many cases the leak isn't actually from the seal, what will cause it is the failure of the o-ring on the shaft beneath the hardened washer forward of the speedo worm. This is supposed to seal and prevent oil getting up the shaft between it and the worm and leaking out the back. In many many cases this will be the culprit rather than the seal itself and if only the seal is replaced the leak will continue. My advice would be to simply bite the bullet, pull the gearbox and go through it front to back re-sealing and oo-ringing as you go. You can also shim it up properly and check the clutch while its out. Yes it is a 'Big' ish job but its not one you're likely to need to do very often and at least you'll know it has been done right. ,,,

need an impact driver, flywheel puller, case splitter, torque wrench and factory
service manual, plus the normal screwdriver, pliers, etc.. Alternate to
the special tools is taking it to the dealer and say "Fix it". I
normally tell people to take it to the shop just so they don't get into
such an involved project and they have a knowing eye working on the engine. Below is a diagram showing how the shift drum moves the shift forks left & right to change gears. Please
rate this answer. Thanks.
