SOURCE: my front forks are leaking oil so i assume its my

take the forks to a bike shop, you can do it yourself but would need a seal driver to refit the new seals. the lever will be a decompressor, use it to get the engine just past top dead centre(the hard bit to kick) and then kick the bike

SOURCE: 2004 CRF 100 shift lever seal leak

Yes. Once you remove the engine cover and expose the shaft and seal, carefully pry the old seal out with a small flat blade screwdriver. Apply some grease to the inside diameter of the new seal, slide it over the shift shaft (clean it first) - and press it in place.

Oil leaking around gear shifter

There should be an oil seal around the shifter shaft, least ways there was on the older models. I've replaced them by removing the shift lever and carefully prying the old seal out and then drive a new one in. Since I don't work on the newer machines, I can't tell you for sure but I doubt Harley has changed this.

Good Luck

I have a 1981 suzuki gs 400 and the gear lever seams to be sticking badly. Can't get it back into neutral ? It has been leaking but I don't know where from

Chances are strong the bike has a bent shift fork. This is a major repair requiring a complete engine tear down. As far as the leak goes, there is a shift shaft seal, drive-shaft ( sprocket shaft ) seal, Kick shaft seal. shift drum switch seal, crank shaft seals and clutch shaft seal. Also, there is the right outer case cover gasket, oil filler "O" ring seal, and the center case mating surface seal. The center case seal is actually a semi-liquid gasket compound applied to the mating surfaces prior to the center case re-assembly. The shift fork repair is not recommended for the unexperienced home mechanic. Below are the main parts if a Suzuki shift mechanism and a diagram of how the shift forks move left and right to change gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks! tombones49_15.gif

My 2004 kx 250f is leaking oil from where the shift lever and gear box meet, how can this be fixed and why might it be leaking?

hi, is this from around the shaft? if so a seal is fitted to this, it is easily replaced by removing the gearchange lever, und using a small sharp pick to push between the shaft and the seal, with not much effort you can pull the old one out,clean around the shaft and seal area and gently push the new 1 in useing even force all round, TIP IF YOU LAY THE BIKE DOWN ON ITS RIGHT SIDE YOU CAN REPLACE THE SEAL WITHOUT REMOVING THE OIL.

I have a 2009 SX 250, there is an oil leak in the shift lever, I am the original owner and never had a hit under there. Is this a major problem?

If you don't mind a few oil drips on the garage floor it should not hurt anything provided the leak isn't so bad that a constant drip is present. Running out of gearbox oil would not be a good thing. Why not just get a new seal?

Oil leaks from where the shift lever goes into the trans. cover. The bike fell on its side during transport.

You have probably damaged the rubber sealing bush or have caused damage to the shifting shalf .Strip down and find the posible cause .

Gear oil leak in front and gear shift lever loose

I would have a mechanic look at it for you. Sounds like it could be an oil seal or it could have a crack in the case or it could be a rear engine seal is shot ?
