Oil is leaking from the shifter shaft on my 2005 1200R. Is there a seal or bushing that needs to be replaced?

There is a seal right behind the shifter. You can replace this seal without having to pull anything more than the shift lever off the shaft. Loosen and remove the bolt. Mark the case or something so that you can remember where to put the shifter back on and remove the shifter from the shaft. Using a screwdriver slip it between the seal and the shaft and work the seal out of the cover. Try not to scar up the shaft or the case. Once you have it out, slip the new seal over the shaft with it facing in the propter direction and use a deep well socket or something to drive the new seal into the cover. Replace the shifter and put the bolt back in. This should stop your leak.

Good Luck

Oil is leaking from my gear shifter. How do you change the seal? I have a 2003 Volusia 800.

1st u need 2 mke sure u get the right seal 2 replace. Ur gear shifter hs removable components that u can easily take off leaving u with a shaft that goes inside, u should then unscrew the cover. The seal is either on that cover or fitted on the shaft. Make sure when u replace u do it properly n avoid damaging the seal or fold its lips becoz u apply a little force whn doing ths. I m confident this wil work. Good luck.

My 1996 yamaha yz250 is leaking oil from the shifter.What can i do to fix it?

Remove the shifter by removing the locking bolt completely. Pull the shifter off. Use a selftapping screw and screw it into the seal that you see around the shifter's shaft. Using a pair of pliers you can now pull the seal out. It is quite tight so be prepared to battle some. Once out you will need to source a new one. The sizes you need are usually stamped into the seal but for the untrained eye is gibberish. Measure the shaft thickness. This is the inner diameter of the seal. Measure the outer diameter of the seal and also the seal thickness. These are the 3 measurements you will need, or you can just take the seal to the spares shop and they can check it for you.
To put the seal back in, clean the shaft properly. Apply some grease around the inner and outer sides of the seal. Wrap some insulation tape or similar around the shaft splines and end. This is to protect the inner lip of the seal so you dont damage it. Slide the seal over the shaft. It can now be carefully tapped into place. Be careful not to tap it in skew. Use a circular drift(pipe, socket) that is no more than 1mm less than the outer diameter of the seal.

How do i change out the seal around the shifter on a 1999 yz250

Hey Genetuck thanks for the link. You can get that seal out with a small .....yeah , you guessed it a "seal Puller". Don't need to go nowhere near a tyranny removal. 1.Mark in white out or similar a dot on your selector shaft and one on your shifter lever so you can re-install in the correct position once the job is done. 2. Once you have the lever off place the puller hook-end in and up between the shaft and the inner lip of the seal,you want to grab that little ****** so the hook is firmly on the metal of the seal and NOT the engine casing,rest a small block of wood behind the opposite side of the puller and give it a good firm pull.Should come right on out.If not , try opposite side with puller.The same method can be used with any seal and success is also achieved with a small (or large screwdriver).I know you can do it Jerry..Just be patient and be careful not to scratch or damage either the shaft or the casing or yourself for that matter. 3. Get yourself a length of pipe that's long enough to fit over the shaft and just fits inside the engine casing , offer up the new seal with a slight smear of eng oil on the new seal lips,lightly tap the seal into place,fit the bit of pipe over the shaft and hit home the seal so it,s square into the casing recess (no need for hulky hits,just a few light to mediums will be enough)and your done and back on the track.hope i could help you out jerry....Cheers.

Oil is leaking out of the shifter assenbly on my 2001 yamaha yx 125. there appears to be some type of seal there. how do i change it?

Most often, the shifter shaft seal is on the inside of the left-side engine/transmission cover. Check this with your repair manual. If so, you would need to remove the shifter assembly from the shifter shaft and then remove all the machine screws that hold the cover on and remove the cover (sliding it off the shifter shaft). If this is the case, you will also need a replacement cover gasket in addition to the shift shaft seal and it will be much less messy if you drain the engine oil first. Also, take care in re-installing the new seal and wrap the knurled end of the shifter shaft with tape prior to sliding the cover back on so it doesn't damage the new seal.

Oil leak on gear shifter shaft

You will want to remove the cover then use a light plastic hammer and a small punch to remove the seal. It should come out very easy. Install the new seal evenly.
