    Replacing that seal is fairly simple but can be tricky.

    Since there is no way to get to the back side to drive it out, you have to use a sharp punch to poke a hole in the seal and pry it out.

    The problem is that if you do it wrong, you could damage the housing and the new seal will leak even worse.
    Never accept mediocrity, always demand competence.

    Have you done anything to start the process? Do you have the new part yet?

    Take off the clutch slave (not shown in your diagram), don't mess with the cylinder. Take off the spacer (shown as #26) and take note of the rubber seal on the clutch push rod (neither shown in the diagram). Take off the sprocket cover (not shown) and plate (#25).

    From there on, I have no idea - besides get a screwdriver, pry the fricken thing out, and put the new one in.

    No seriously, no-one's helping because not many have done this, including myself. My best advice is to take it to the dealer.

    Although it is a bit more work, the best approach for replacing the seal is to remove the clutch push rod after removing the slave cylinder. To do this you must remove the outer clutch cover and then remove the pressure plate and lastly pull the push rod out. With the push rod removed it is much easier to remove and replace the seal and you are less likely to damage the case or push rod. If you plan to attempt this your self you should get yourself a workshop manual which has a detailed procedure for disassembling the clutch pressure plate and all the necessary torque specs.

    I had to replace one of the buggers on a 93 ZX-7 once. However this one was removed from the inside of the plate/cover. Which made the plate/cover had to come off. Well to get that off, I had to drop the engine. There were two screws that could not be accessed due to the frame being in the way. All that work to replace a 3 dollar seal. While I was at it I replaced the drive shaft seal too.

    So, this one on the RSV should real easy....but can you actually get the part? Thats what would amaze me. I doubt dealers would caarry that in stock. but being a rotax it might be a common seal for their other motors...

    Thread revival!

    Any recent experience on this deal? Assume it's best to have oil drained or does it not matter?

    Figured a tool like this should work ok. Yeah?

    If your dentist uses those you are in big trouble.

    No need to drain the oil, SD. I think you will need something a bit stronger that those pics to remove the seal. Look at theknurl's link.
