Counter Shaft Seal Replacement

Hey everyone, went riding this Sunday and when I returned home I noticed that there was oil around the shifter and behind the front sprocket. Took the sprocket off yesterday and found the issue. Oil is seeping out of the counter shaft seal. Already ordered the new replacement kit from rockymountain and itíll be here tomorrow, just wondering if anyone has step by step pictures or a video of how to replace the seal? Thanks in advance

Here's a thread i posted to help a member awhile back....https://www.kfx450hq.com/forums/gene...t-turnout.html


remove the c-clip & either a strong screwdriver, seal hook or a seal puller to pry the old one out...seal puller https://www.ebay.com/itm/Seal-Puller...4AAOSw1btdcxsD

And replace the O-ring, install the shaft sleeve & press the new seal in with your fingers or use a large socket to gently tap the new seal into place if needed...???

Here's a simple video to help

Thanks for the reply! My only question is, in all of the videos Iíve seen how to do the replacement, the seal is flush with the case, but on my quad it seems like itís pushed back and the snap ring is holding the seal itself in. Is that correct?

I recently did mine and that snap ring sucks! The one in the kit is a different design and should be easier to remove

How tf did you get the snap ring out??? It keeps hitting the spacer. Does spacer have to come out first?
