hey guys. found that my mystery leak was NOT the shift shaft seal (exclusively) it was the crankshaft seal. I rode into town today, and it was once again leaking heavily from the cam covers. pulled the covers (again) and found a nice trail running from under the crankshaft area. there was a LOT of crud there before, but today I had a good trail to follow (more like a superhighway). anyways, to get the crank bolt off I tried my impact gun......no dice, outta air (i use a 20 lb co2 bottle and regulator instead of a compressor). on a lark, I pulled the 17mm cover for the stator, and used a ratchet to hold the shaft steady, CRANK BOLT CAME RIGHT OUT!!!! no muss, no fuss, just came right loose. for those without access to airtools (or just no air), this method works a champ.

How hard will it be to replace the crank seal?
