rear seal leak

Postby gbduck » Sat Apr 09, 2016 8:25 am



Hello everyone.
I'm new here here my name is Brad.
I have a 1987 gl1200 and it started leaking what I first thought was gear oil. I took it into a very respectable shop and mechanic pulled the boot back and said the oil is coming from the rear seal on the engine where the driveline goes in. I'm having trouble locating this seal! They suggested a site called David silver spares in England. Any ideas or help would be very much appreciated! They also said the outer dimensions on a seal for the gl1100 were the same but the thickness wasnt. Again any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, it's a great bike with only 55,000 miles

I looked around and only found one seal in that area. Called rear case seal 91201-ML8-003 $10-14.00 Call a couple Honda places see if thats the right seal. Or Google that number and see if you can find any information about it.

That is the part number the shop gave me. Did you find someone that has it in stock?

TMS parts says they have one in stock (Temecula Motorsports) $10.03. 25x54x12 guess thats in mm? phone 877-698-4123. If they dont have it call every Honda dealer in US someone has one on the shelf. Thats all I got

:D ok update on my seal. I found one in Sioux city IA! The dealer in California didn't have one but he was kind enough to email me 10 dealers that had it listed!! If anyone needs this info i plan on keeping the email.
Tons of thanks to "twocams"!
