so i was replacing a bad seal from the outside so i didnt have to crack my case. did so yesterday, took the variator off, screwed 2 wood screws into the old seal a little and tugged it out(thanks lee)
took my brand new seal, pushed it in all nice and even turned my bike on and to my joy no more air leak and faaast.
rode around about 20 minutes trying it on hills and flats, heating it up. come home cause some neighborhood nogoodnicks are walking around my basement door and i figure i should do a hot check for air leaks. look down at the seal and it is about 1/2 way out, against that little washer with the weird hole for the crank.
????? dirt or oil on case when I installed?
There is a little gouge near the seal on the crank, could that be grabbing just the edge of the seal and then working it all out!?
i have another brand new seal, take it out, clean it up try again?
