Alright, I've done quite a bit of research without finding anything, hoping some other BRP owners/mechanics can help me out. I've only had my XR600R for a few months, but it hadn't let me down or leaked any oil before. Until out on a ride, downshifted around a turn, and heard some expensive noises. Looked down to see a bunch of oil flung out all around the front sprocket. Before the ride, I'd added 1/3 quart of oil and later realized it was overfilled, so maybe some internal seals blew out via my own dumb fault. Back home on the stand, I cleaned everything and noticed a fresh nick out of the stator case right in front of the front sprocket. I'm think when I downshifted there was some slap and the chain came off of the front sprocket, which was the grinding noise I heard. But how could a chain coming off be related to an oil leak? With the front sprocket off, I could shift through every gear and back down without a drop of oil coming out. I cleaned the whole drivetrain, put the sprocket and chain back on, did the same thing, and oil flung out and turned my chain black again. So it's only leaking under load? I replaced the countershaft seal, very carefully, plenty of grease, tapped it in with a big socket, and the problem is still exactly the same. Also, the countershaft itself is rock solid. And I got a good view of the bearings with the countershaft seal out and they looked fine. I'm not sure why it's only leaking under load. My dad noted it could be a pressure problem, maybe the crankcase not properly ventilated. Please share your opinions, thanks in advance for your time and help!
Trying to do a counter shaft seal replacement on my klx450. Couldn't for the life of me get the collar out, a friend suggested I take the oil cap off so there is no suction. That worked to get the collar out. Then picking at the seal with a pick to get it out I pulled out this spring, mangled the shit out of it: The seal kit doesn't come with any springs. Just two rubber o-rings, the collar, a snap ring etc. Anyone know what the function of this spring is and how bad it is that I destroyed it? Thanks EDIT: Here's a picture of the parts diagram from the manual.. Not sure which one it is, maybe the one with the circled G and R symbols pointing to it? Prints are shitty, can't tell if its a spring or an o-ring but hope this helps:
Hey, I have an old 2000 xr 80 and I replaced pretty much all the oil seals on it. All the seals are working fine except the countershaft seal under the front sprocket. It is the correct seal, based on Hondapartshouse.com but it leaks oil and when I check it it’s always cocked out and not seated properly. I did some research and saw that I might need to replace the bearing behind the seal, but am still confused on why that seal wouldent be seated properly. I need all the help I can get. Thanks (#22 in the photo).
