guitardad Posted November 22, 2009 Share Posted November 22, 2009 The bike in question is DW's 2004 R1150R Rockster, with almost 60k miles. It's been "weeping" a little oil which drips from the boot between swingarm and FD for a while, but the leak is worse over the last month. Looking up inside the swingarm, I can see that there's oil a long way up there. So I'm pretty sure the leak is from the transmission output shaft seal. Last couple of times the bike has been to the shop, we were told the trans output shaft seal would need to be replaced eventually. And with November upon us, if the bike sits for a while it's not such a big deal. Now my Clymer says to split the transmission case to drive out the old seal from the inside. As does my R1100 factory manual (5-speed, I know, but still!). Has anyone ever replaced the output shaft seal without taking the transmission case apart? How, and how hard was it? Link to comment
