countershaft seal

This may sounds like a stupid question. Does Honda call the part under the countersaft sprocket the oil seal? It is the part you can actually see when you have the sprocket off. I put new sprockets on last night and mine was damaged. When I ordered it I ordered the oil seal but after looking at the diagram I'm not sure I ordered the correct part. Thanks...

Looks like it's #32. Which is called an o-ring.

part# 91201-ML3-873


I'll just get on the phone and tell them to send both parts. Whats $2 more to make sure I have the right part.

If its like my CR, 32 is the "d" ring / o-ring and 33 is the actual seal. My seal actually wore a groove in the collar, seal was fine, just had to replace the collar, but did both anyway.

Both #32 & #33 seal the countershaft.

#33 is the one you can physically see and it seals the collar #3 on the outside of it and #32 seals the inside of #3 collar.

And yes I'd replace both of them to make sure, sometimes the #3 collar can get worn(grooved) bad enough and need to be replaced also.


I think I misunderstood what he was saying. When I changed mine I replaced the collar, o-ring and seal.

I assumed since he ordered the oil seal he was talking about the o-ring.

Now I'm not so sure. :)

      I have a 2005 CRF450R with a Trail Tech fan kit installed. I need a little bit larger tank and would like to know if anyone has an aftermarket tank that fits with the fan kit.
      I dont need a monster 4 gallon, just maybe a 2.4 or 2.7 from IMS would do fine.  I talked with both the tank vendor and Trail Tech and neither could give me any answers.
      Thanks guys.

      So I emailed Factory Connection today to see what spring rate I need for the rear as I’m about 6’2” 220 lbs without gear. I also asked for a baseline front fork PSI to start at. This is what I received:
      The spring series we made for your bike is limited when it comes to larger/stiffer rates.  
      The spring rate you need is 5.9/6.0 range. We don’t sell that over the counter as it requires special installation process.  So we can’t sell the spring “over the counter”.  It would have to be installed at our shop.  
      Fork PSI I would recommend:
      Inner 160 psi
      Outer 11 psi
      Balance 160 psi
      Are they blowing smoke up my ass? What kind of ‘special installation’ could a spring take? I’ve changed and removed them before but not on a 16’ CRF before.
      Also, aren’t those psi settings for the Kawasaki KYB? I don’t think the psf2 have inner/outer/balance do they? Maybe he was having a bad day...or maybe I’m an idiot. FC’s website list there spring as ALS-0059. Can I not just order this spring and install it to set my sag correctly? Help?
