Had a leak under the clutch lift/sprocket cover so I replaced the clutch pushrod and sprocket countershaft oil seals. I still have oil leaking from the back of the crankcase from it seems where the halves meet but I can't pinpoint it or even get back there to clean. Dry under the sprocket cover.
However, very alarming. I just got back from a little ride and spun the back wheel a bit to check the chain tension and tire pressure and found that the sprocket shaft was squeaking loudly if not profusely. Waiting for the bike to cool down a bit so I can pull the cover and look.
Can you post a photo of the oil at the case halves?
How's the chain tension? What's it set at?
I didn't think you could do the counter shaft seal with the cases together. There any sagging or metal shavings? Can you remove the sprocket and post a photo?
Photo at case halves- I'll see what I can do in the morning, but really like I said I can't pinpoint it, and access is tight back there so maybe not. There is no oil above it, there is oil literally everywhere below it.
Chain tension I'm totally lost. .75" (3/4") vertical movement?
My (cheap) chain actually is breaking in unevenly. There's loose spots so I'm just getting it 'about right' - a little loose here, maybe a smidge tight there. I did let it get way too loose for a ride or two when it was first breaking in.
Far as the sprocket seal goes, I'll get some pics of that for you all. I did drill out a pilot hole to remove the old seal and a shaving or two was back there but I meticulously wiped them out. I definitely could've missed a tiny one or two though. I also was sure I'd heard of people replacing it with the method I used.
