Output shaft collar stuck. 2012 KX450F

Recommended Posts

I had an oil leak coming from behind my countershaft sproket so I went to the dealer to get a new seal and O-ring. I got the seal off fine but I can't get the collar off to get to the o-ring(s). I have searched all over but everything I have found is for models a few years older that have the snap ring in over the seal. Some have mentioned 2 O-rings as well but I can't find the specifics for 2012. Any help would be appreciated.

There are two rings. They stick to the collar. Badly. I ended up using a dremel to grind lips on the collar, then used some large vice grips. Obviously try pulling before grinding grooves.

On the new collar and seals I used some rubber grease.

The o-rings are probably sealing perfectly. So you could leave the collar in place and just replace the outer seal.
