    Output shaft oil leak

    Hi All

    Has anyone had an output shaft seal behind the front sprocket fail? I have a very small oil leak on the new engine I have fitted and I am pretty sure its the oil seal leaking and then flinging the oil around. Its not very much but enough to be annoying.

    Wondered if anyone else had one fail? The engine was stored and shipped with no sprocket on for a bit and I think the sprocket compresses the sleeve that holds the inner seal in place. So maybe it got dislodged.

    Did you get a light misting of oil onto the gear lever and side stand from the chain picking it up when it did it?

    Mine is a very very small leak too.
