I just changed the shifter seal but the engine is out of the frame. It was very easy to get a small hook into it and pull it out, I think that you should be able to do this with the engine installed. the seal is a metric seal # 14x28x7 this is the size the Honda # is H 91206-286-013

I changed on on my 1200, took off the shift lever, made me a hook out of a piece of small welding rod and pulled the old seal out. You just press the new seal in. Cover the splines on the shaft with a bit of tape so the lips on the new seal don't get cut, greas the shaft with a light wipe of moly grease to protect the seal. A trace of moly in your oil isn't going to be enough to bother the clutch, but it will go a long way to make the seal last.

Does the oil need to be drained before pulling the seal out?

Might be a good idea, I did mine during an oil change while the oil was out.

No, you can do it with the oil in. In fact I didn't lose any oil at all when I did mine.

You ought to take a picture of it along with the receipt, that's gotta be a record for a bike part from a Honda dealer!:goofygrin:

Thats kinda what I told the parts guy. I said I can't believe there is a part for $2.99. He was laughing too.

We then looked up the price for a single front brake piston. $79.00USD. I told him I would just find a salvaged one.

Gotta love this board! My wing has been doing a harley imitation on the garage floor and I saw it was the shifter seal. Came here to ask about it and the answer was already waiting for me before I could ask. Thanks!

I think there should be a "parts exchange" here on the board. When someone comes upon a deal like this, it's imperative that they buy more than one and share the find! What say ye?

And this is to say nothing of the deals that those of us in the US/Canada could pass on to those across the pond - and vice-versa!

Post it on the "breakers" thread. Thats a good thread for putting in parts suppliers details. :waving:
