crank seal

Just curious what the best way to put the right side crank seal in is.

Its a 93 yz250 the case is already put back together, so I will have to go around the crank shaft to install it so any tips like vaseline, or will that not work anyway all ideas are are greatly appreciated.


Have you taken care of the seal yet? I'm in the same situation with a 93 YZ oil seal leak. I've read here, that you can drive a wood screw partway into the old seal and grab onto that to pull it out of the case.

You might do the fork seal trick when putting the new one on. Put a sandwich bag over the end of the shaft and slide the new (greased) seal over it so the seal won't hang up or tear on the end of the crank shaft.

      A tiny clear rubber tube on bottom of carb.  On bottom sort of on side, by floats, the other end just hanging down.  Was it always like this? Or does the other end go somewhere?  Today after multiple trys with kick, choke on/off ,,,fuel keeps pouring out the tube.  This bike has always been hard to start.   Thanx  guys!

      I just did my valve adjustments and put my YZ250f back together as far as the valves, shims buckets and cam covers on but I need adhesive for the plastic valve/cam cover and I am stumped as far as what to use and where to get it or even what to call it! Need to get some soon im in need of a ride!

      Hey guys, I bought this YZ85 and came to realise the clutch wasnt working, so I drained the oil (Jet black) and pulled the plates out and cleaned them. I assumed finding a torque wrench would be easier than it has been. Does anyone know how to torque the clutch springs to spec without a wrench? Any insight helps.
