Crank shaft seal re&re

Postby garyo » Wed Apr 15, 2015 9:08 pm



I have a 93 SE...I need to replace the front crank shaft seal. From what I can find there is no lip on it so I should be able to pull it with a slide hammer and replace...Is this true...

Maybe. It's hard to tell. The only mention of this seal in the service manual is during reassembly of the engine case after the halves have been split.

Oil Seal
Oil Seal


The instructions for it read: Install the oil seal with the lip side facing inside.

The oil seal part number (for my 2000 bike, double check to make sure yours is the same) is 91201-MN5-003. Looking at the part itself, it *looks* like it could be pulled and replaced:



There is a lip, visible on the top side of the seal, that goes on the engine side (closer to the back of the bike), not the timing belt pulley side.

So could you use a puller to get the old one out, then slather the new one with oil and slide it into place, hoping the lip doesn't rip? Probably. They're cheap - I might get a couple just in case. :) Also tape over the crankshaft end to cover up any sharp parts that might cut the lip.

Good luck!

This is what I figured. I will put a bevel on the hole in the housing to help Not wrecking the seal. Thanks.. . Gary from Gary-Built Motorcycle Tent Trailers
