1997 rm250 HELP!!!!!

Recommended Posts

there is oil coming out of the kick starter shaft on the rh case cover wondering if it is just a seal or was there other problems here? Has anyone ever done one of these? How entailed? I do have a suzuki owners service manual. But was looking for any personal insight.

There's a seal on that shaft on the outside of the cover. They often leak over time. The best way to replace it is to pull the cover, pop out the old seal with a small screwdriver, then press in a new seal. Don't try to do it with the cover in place (with the shaft sticking out), or you run the risk of screwing up the new seal.

Don't need to take primary nut off to fix seal, but check the case to make sure the hole where the seal goes is not wallowed out. previous owner let it go too long on my 97. had to replace case. not cheap!!!

what about getting the primary gear nut off without the tool that holds the primary?

Use something (like a big screwdriver) to jam the basket and turn the nut off. It's not on that tight. Reverse the procedure to put it on. Be careful to not mess up the basket fingers.
