Shifter seal question

Has anyone here ever replaced the rubber seal around a gear shift lever shaft ?

My Honda is fine but I have a 2001 Kawi that leaks oil and if you put pressure on it you can move it back and forth. I beleive there is a sleeve also if im correct ?

Im guessing the cover needs to be removed to do it ?

I dont know for sure, but I think all youd have to do is remove the shifter and pull the seal out and reinstall the new one, someone else may correct if Im wrong..

Yeah, this is correct, but if his shifter shaft is moving back and forth, he may have a bad bearing or bushing inside there somewhere. I don't know anything at all about a Kawasaki. I don't have any experience with how they're set up.

ADDED: I may have misunderstood what the OP meant by "back and forth". If he meant that it was moving in and out a little, that may be normal, but if it's moving up and down, it's not normal.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Its moving up and down and side to side, not in and out. Its not loose but if you apply pressure in any direction it will move slightly. I checked my 4trx and its tight, no movement at all. I looked at the OEM specs and it shows the rubber seel with a bushing sleeve behind it.

OEM Parts Kawasaki Lakota Sport (KEF300-B1) 2001 ENGINE COVER(S) - Cheap Cycle Parts

# 92050 and 92028

I will order both parts and see what happens when I pull the seel and replace it first. If it can be done without removing the cover thats a plus.

Yeah, the bushing is probably wore. I don't know if you'll be able to change the bushing without pulling the cover or not. I bet that pushing is pressed in and if it is, you'll probably have to remove the cover and drive it out and drive the new one in.

Its my new project...I get bored and this was just sitting in a garage waiting to get rescued - 2001 kawi lacota 300. Carb was shot so I put on a carb from a Honda 400ex. She tears it up know but has minor issues, nothing that cant be fixed.It was just abused.

Do you guys know what size angled unifilter would fit a 400ex carb ???

your gonna have to pull the cover in order to get the bushing out..and the new one back in..if it was just the seal..then you could just pry that out..and tap the new seal back in.

not much too it..drain your oil..orrrrrrrrr..tilt your bike at 45 degree angle...enough so most of your oil is over on the other side..remove the shifter..and anything else thats in the way..remove the cover..you may..or may not need a new side cover gasket ????..as there is no telling what will happen the old gasket on there as your removing the cover ..once the cover is off..knock the old bushing out..drive the new one in..then tap your new seal in..if you don't tear up the old gasket too much while removing it....you can get some hondabond or yamabond..and put this stuff on each side of the gasket where it tore..it should not leak.
