Crank and shift shaft seal removal technique


Here is a quick and easy way to remove oil seals from the engine or transmission cases without splitting them. Watch the video for the step by step process. This technique only works on seals that can be installed from the externally (outside)

You don't even need a slide hammer, simple self tapping screws and heel bars or big flat tip screw drivers work good. 


Yep, lots of ways to do it.  Depending on how much room you have to work with.  This is just one particular way.

      Have an old book sitting on the shelf and thought I up load some picts.  Waiting for the smoker to do its thing so have some time to kill.  
      I got this from my so called stepdad, he had a type setting company and I am not sure how/why he acquired it.  I will ask him next time I see him.  Not sure if he did any editing, or it was just a gift to him.  I believe this was done for a Italian mfg, not sure.  Anyway, some cool picts bring back mems.  Excuse the camera it is not the best, most are painful to look at so will only upload a few.

      Hi All.
      I have just finished getting my YZ 250 F road legal here in the UK and so I thought I would make a post about it in the hope that it makes someone elses life that little bit easier should they need to do it. There are lots of posts about this on the net but most are outdated already.
      I will lay this out in steps for ease. These are the steps in which I did it. At this point I will assume you already have a bike and you want to know what to do next.
      1. Contact the bike manufacturer.
      - Yamaha
      - Kawasaki
      - Suzuki
      - Honda
      - KTM - Give them a call
      Contact the above bike manufacturer and tell them you have purchased a bike and would like a 'Certificate of Newness'. Each manufactuer charges different money, foe example Yamaha charged me £45 and it took 3 weeks to arrive and my friend has a Kawasaki and they charged him £42 and it arrived the following week.
      2. MOT - You can only do this once you have the above certificate in your hand
      Now after ringing around various MOT bays it become quite clear that this is a bit of grey area. Each testing bay had their own idea on how a "daytime MOT" should be done. These are the things you will need to look out for;
      - Road legal tyres - They cannot say "not for road use" and should ideallly have an "E" number of some sort on them.
      - A Horn - Every single testing bay I called required a horn. You can get a strap on horn from eBay for about £20
      - Rear Brake Light - Some testing bays told me I needed a rear brake light. In the end I didn't need 1 for my MOT but I fitted one afterwards using a Total Loss System*.
      - Speedo - I did not need on but if you do get asked for one then you can download a speedo on your phone and attach that to your bike.
      * For the total loss system I replaced the bango nuts for bango brake switches, added a cheap rear number plate holder with light and added a 10 battery holder pack under the seat then wired it up. If they ask for this then remember it does not have to run off the bike so don't worry about fitting heavy duty stators etc.
      Each MOT tester is different so phone around and find the easiest way of doing it.
      3. NOVA Declaration
      Now at this point you should have an MOT certificate and a certificate of newness. Before you go any further, check your certificate of newness and if it states that the bike has been added to the NOVA database then you can move onto the next step. If not, then your bike has to be added to the NOVA database. You must do thi, I cannot stress that enough. If you do not have a NOVA reference on your certificate then follow the steps below;
      - HMRC NOVA - Go to this site. Register or login
      - DeeperBlue NOVA Walkthrough - This guy, Deeperblue,  has a step by step guide on YouTube. Follow this and you should have the bike added easily.
      It is worth noting that the HMRC will want to see a copy of the reciept for the bike(my friend made me one on a bit of paper as I got it from him) and your certificate of newness.
      4. V55/5
      At this point you should have been accepted by NOVA, have your valid MOT and your certificate of newness.
      - Order your V55/5 form here
      - DeeperBlue V55/5 Walkthrough - This guy, Deeperblue,  has a step by step guide on YouTube. Follow this and you should have the form filled in and sent easily.
      You will need to send a £55 registration fee and money for 1 years tax. You can check the current tax bracket for your bike at
      Send off all required documents with the above V55/5 along with your cheque or postal order for your tax and registration.
      5. Complete
      If all went well you should have all your documents back in the post along with your new motorbike log book. Now all you need to do is get a number plate made up,  get some insurance and have some fun on your bike.
      If I can help by answering any questions then I gladly will. Big big thank you to DeeperBlue for his help with the videos.
      Mods/Admins, I hope this post is OK in these forums. There is so much stuff on the internet which is not clear so I wanted to help with that.

      New to this site, I am currently having problems with my recently purchased 2004 Yz250 2t, when i first got the bike it had trouble starting and possible carb issues, so i sent it to a local bike mechanic.
      Got the bike back 2 weeks later, he cleaned carb on bike and done some other small bits that arent related to this problem. The starting isues were resovled by useing the correct sparkplug and it now idles great however midrange to high revs its useless, not hitting power band atall, today i took it out and really tryed to give it some beans to see if it was clogged with somthing that it could maybe spit out (bad decision I am not bike smart)
      It proceeded to backfire and stall out, hasnt started since, (still has compression and is not siezed)
      Any help would be very appreciated!
