I have come up with the list ending reason not to do a poor boy. The front crank seal, especially one this old, cannot take the strain of a pulley putting sideways pressure on it and will fail accordingly. This is a seal that can not be replaced. They simply are not available anywhere. Period.

So, knowing that, do you plan on keeping the bike for awhile?

The front crank seal from a 1500 is the same size and will work. Have to disagree with the sideways pressure, be hard pressed to put enough pressure on the front of the crank to make it bend.

Another consideration is to pull the engine, replace the stator if it's faulty, do the clutch at the same time depending on Kms. Once this is done replace the RR with a series RR such as the SH847 from Roadstercycle. Know of an '85 LTD that has one installed, sold him the one I had and it is working very well. The series RR is a good upgrade.

Check the stator first, if it's good, do the test on the RR. If all is good something else is wrong.

The seals are directional and opposite.
