G'day T'Talkers, Has anyone ever replaced the oil seal on the coutershaft? Whenever I ride through alot of mud, the seal develops a slight leak. My last ride I was loading the bike ready to go home and noticed about half a teaspoon of oil dribbling down into my bashplate. My question : Is it hard to replace or do I just dig it out of there and install another seal? Another question (for dual sport riders): I am planning a ride through parts of Tasmania, most of which will be on tight and twisty road . Have any of you ridden asphalt (800k's) without serious problems? As the 400 is a Dirtbike, I am concerned about potential gear box problems for sustained 4th/5th gear riding. Thanks. Grum.
