seal question

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

 

  I have two questions.  First is I believe the water propeller seal was installed backwards (by someone other then me.)  The cup for the seal is pointing towards the water propeller and I believe it should face towards the bearing.  I pulled the seal and left it up the way I found it for the picture.  As stated I believe it should be turned 180 degrees around.

The second question is in regards to the countershaft seal.  I have had a leak since day one coming from this seal.  When pulled it was not inserted 1mm from the lip (per Honda's directions) instead it was installed flush with the case.  When I removed this seal I noticed that it appears the lip of a previous seal was still inside the grove of where it is installed.  Very hard to see.  I tried to use a pick to help remove it but all I was doing was creating a small scratch between the case wall and this lip (very small area.)  Any ideas or tips to remove the remains of the old seal?  When the bearing comes out will there be access, is there a chemical that will dissolve rubber and not hurt aluminum?  If you can see anything please see picture of this.  Any idea would be greatly appreciated.

Didnt catch the year if you mentioned it, but my 02 250 has the seal as yours is pictured. I just checked the manual, it it shows it being installed like this also.

 

As for the remaining seal piece, perhaps a small eyeglass ( flat head..or any other super small tipped ) screwdriver will reach down in there to lift it out.

Oh good to hear that, that seal was installed correctly, I will go ahead and install the new one the same way.  As far as the half stuck seal, I realized that there is not a grove at all.  I was able to pry out the whole thing.  Which is good news.  Now on to the bad news.  I created a few scratches, and I think the previous owner created a few more then me.  Here is the picture.  I have no idea if this will hold oil without leaking.  Is there anything that can be done?  Gasket sealer?  a little JB weld? Just install the new seal and keep my fingers crossed there is not a leak?  Here are two pictures, I know they are hard to see!

 

 

Thanks guys for all your help,

If not really deep at all, I'd just press a seal in it. If its deep I'd coat that area with yamabond or hondabond and press the seal in while the sealer is wet. It should be fine.

      Kicking around the idea of selling my CR250. I have other bikes and never get a chance to ride this one.

      This is a well-maintained bike with tons of aftermarket parts. It's set up primarily for woods/single-track riding, but will still do just fine on an MX track.

      Engine:
      -Fresh Pro-X top end(<1 hour)
      -FMF Gnarly pipe & FMF Shorty silencer(<1 hour on fresh packing)
      -PWK Air-Striker Carburetor(bought new from JD Jetting last year)
      -Steahy 10oz. Flywheel Weight
      -Boyesen Rad Valve with Carbon-fiber reeds
      -TwinAir air filter

      Misc:
      -Excel Pro-Series Wheels(19"/21")
      -Brand-new Shinko tires(546 Front, 505 Cheater Rear not mounted yet) w/ Heavy-duty tubes
      -Works Connection Radiator Guards
      -Skid Plate
      -FMF Factory 909 Handlebars
      -Polished Frame
      -Sunstar 13/51 Steel Sprockets(new in box)

      I'm sure I'm missing a few odds and ends. Comes with a Bill of Sale only. (708)287-1998 - Dave

      Hello,
      I could not seem to find a similar thread so if one exists I apologize. I have an 02 cr250r with an 01 motor. I need to buy a new silencer with a spark arrestor because the current one does not have one. I am not sure if the owner before me used an 01 or 02 silencer because I have read the frame had significant changes from 01 to 02. Any thoughts? Thanks!

      I want to restore a 1996 cr80 that doesn’t have any graphics and absolutely love the 1994 cr125r tank shroud graphics, I can’t seem to find anything that fits the cr80 with those graphics. I found one last week but lost the page and couldn’t track it down again, do the cr125r graphics fit the cr80 tank shrouds? or does anyone know where someone could make them for cheap or know about any in Australia

      Hey guys,
       
      Could someone please explain the numbers on a needle jet for a mikuni carb?  I'm currently running a 38-73 needle but a lot of the people I talk to say I would be happier running a 38-70 needle.  I don't have a problem with going with what other recommend but I would like to understand the numbering for the needles first.  I understand the nozzle sizes, main jet and pilot jet it's just this damn needle thingamobob
       
      Thanks a lot
