Are you going to replace the valve cover gaskets and rubber bolt seals?

The thingy that shifts gears is attached to the shift shaft.

Remember the cam pulley?? You posted a picture.

It was attached to the camshaft.

The camshaft makes the valves open.

If you're going to work on old motorcycles you'll have to become your own parts person or get a bus pass and spend hours/days at the dealer staring into a blank face.

For module one go online to one of the vendors with parts diagrams and find the shifter seal and post the part number you find.

If you pass we'll move on to the camshaft seals in module two.
If you fail wait two days and try again.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

that animated diagram is awesome! it all makes so much more sense to me now. ok, does the cam need to come off to replace the seal?

Crimson Wing,

Maybe I didn't see it in the other post, but do you not have a service manual for you bike?


If not I will get one to you. It looks like you really need a manual.

The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem. Do you understand?
