crankshaft seal

from the pics, your (discontinued by Honda) crank seal was leaking...
there is one, & only one on E Bay right now, PN# 91201-MG9-005,
you'll need it sooner or later, better scoop it up now!

Thank you Carshando and I did go buy that seal.

Just to update, I used the impact to tighten the crank bolt, used a little lower air pressure and just bumped the gun but it got it tight.

Changed out the seal, when I tapped the new one in it seems it was sticking out a little. By that I mean maybe a 1/32' or smaller. After tapping it several times I just stopped since I didn't want to screw up the seal. I did go loosen up the cam rocker bolt but that didn't help. The tapping was solid so I felt it was fully inserted, maybe it was my imagination.

Found some Gates belts for $10 (for 2) and used them. Also changed the plugs. Antifreeze needs to be silicate free so found some of that. I used the old belt cover gaskets which I had to trim since they grew by about 3 inches.

Bike runs good, starts easier, idles better, seems like it has a tad bit more power.

So far no leaks but I only got to drive it for 2 days and now it sounds like the rear break is metal on metal so I had to put it up until I can check that out.

How did you get the seal and install it in a day? Are you magic?

Why ain't we ridin'?

Loosening the cam rocker bolts has nothing to do with the crank seal. Hope those were not used belts you got for $10. Was it out of time? Belts wouldn't make it run better if it wasn't.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
