How to change gear spindle shaft oil seal.
Hi. I have found that left side of the engine is wet. After investigation I have understood that the spindle shaft oil seal is worn. Also nicks on the shaft are worn and it haŠ² a free play. Below is an info, how to change this ill-starred oil seal.

1. Get the bike on the right side on the guard ( I have used a pieces of wood under the guards).
2. Uninstall left lower fairings (see the manual because I was lazy to make some photos)

8. Pull the exhaust down and forward. Now u should to unscrew the shaft bolt and disassembly it. In my case the shaft had looseness and a bit worn nicks. I decided to cut the clearance by disc cutter; therefore I would squeeze the shaft on the spindle shaft.
