« on: August 08, 2018, 08:22:39 PM »
not how i wanted my first post to read, but oil is coming from behind my front sprocket at an alarming rate, how difficult is it to replace  oilseal?  can a fat bloke with a socket set manage it or is it back to garage for expensive fettling? any help is welcome, thankshttps://www.street-triple.co.uk/Smileys/street/148.gif

I have removed the sprocket nut with both wheels on the ground, an "assistant" standing on the rear brake and a 1/2" drive 3 ft. breaker bar. The last time I borrowed a large battery powered impact gun. It said "earthquake" on the side of it and made my vision blur! :002: Did you buy a replacement oil seal?

You did unbend the safety washer, right?
