Trying to do a counter shaft seal replacement on my klx450. Couldn't for the life of me get the collar out, a friend suggested I take the oil cap off so there is no suction. That worked to get the collar out. Then picking at the seal with a pick to get it out I pulled out this spring, mangled the shit out of it:
The seal kit doesn't come with any springs. Just two rubber o-rings, the collar, a snap ring etc. Anyone know what the function of this spring is and how bad it is that I destroyed it?
EDIT: Here's a picture of the parts diagram from the manual.. Not sure which one it is, maybe the one with the circled G and R symbols pointing to it? Prints are shitty, can't tell if its a spring or an o-ring but hope this helps:
I need a crank oil seal, process seems simple enough with the write ups but the kit comes with a few seals in it. What seals are they for and is there anything else I should replace while it's opened up? And is the basket holder tool used in Rocky Mountains video necessary?
