XR70 Oil Leak

Recommended Posts

I’m hoping someone can help me out. I’ve got a 2003 xr70 (stock) that is leaking from the seal around the kick starter. I’m hoping someone can give me some insight on changing this out.

Can the seal be replaced WITHOUT removing the case?

If I have to remove the case, are there things to do before I unbolt it, like drain the oil? Anything else? I've purchased a manual, but it won't be here until later this week... (I hope)

I appreciate any help I can get…. Thanks

Yes you can replace it without removing the sidecase or draining the oil. First just remove the kickstarter, and then lay the bike over on its left side so the oil wont run out. Then you can simply take like a screw and screw it into the old seal so you can pull it out with something, and then just put the new seal back in its place. You can use a socket that matches its size to hammer it in so that it doesnt get cocked sideways and mess up the new seal.
