DRZ CS seal leaking after installation

Recommended Posts

2007 DRZ400sm countershaft seal went out while riding it. Found out before the engine seized, but the dipstick had no oil on it.

We replaced everything needed, new seal, spacer, and small o-ring in the seal. We put everything back together, and it still leaks.

One thing I noticed was when I installed the seal the first time, I pushed it in too far. I gently pulled it back out and made it flush with the engine case. I then put in the spacer and rotated it a couple times to get the lips of the seal situated before putting on the sprocket. I oiled the seals before installation.

I was really bummed that it still leaks. Did I miss something here? I looked at the "How-to" section and didn't see anything I might have missed.

Easy to damage a seal or loose the garder spring when you reposition a seal. Replace it again.

Put the seal collar in the right way? Notches in.

Play in the shaft bearing?
