1998 Yamaha Timberwolf fb250 4x2 shaft seal replacement

I have a 1998 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x2 that I recently noticed a pretty heavy oil leak. I discovered that it was coming from the shift shaft seal. I can’t find anything specific to this atv, (or others), on how to replace it. I found several videos on motorcycles and the fix appears simple. The problem is that the shift shaft on my Timberwolf runs through a metal arm welded to the engine, so I can’t slide the seal over the shaft. (Picture attached). Can anyone please steer me in the right direction. Thank you BCE1A25A-FCC3-47A3-BCED-0F25FCFE3CD4.thumb.jpeg.82a97941efd0c3d28ac73225eb8a8baa.jpeg

      What's the best kids atv out there? I've seen everything from the ones released by the major manufacturers to all those knock offs. Kawasaki has a KFX 50 that is pretty nice for under $1800...

      Anyone purchase or check out Rockymtnatv lately? Well I was just browsing over there and they have a pretty cool section called Ten Dollars Or Less. Some interesting things to check out if you are in the market.

      Greetings, 
      Have a 88 LT80 that been sitting for a couple years. Bought a new piston, cylinder and head. Installed these, rolled it over and it quickly locks up.  Took carb apart. It was full of what appears to be 2 cycle oil. Cleaned it, but keeps locking up and 2 cycle oil continues to seap from exhaust port.  When i installed new cylinder, I noticed crankcase was full of oil.  I'm now wondering if that oil is what's getting sucked up into cylinder.  Should there be no oil in crankcase?  If that the case, how is crank and rod lubricated?  Sorry, never worked on a 2 stroke. Thanks!

      I see quite a few ads for that  Tribotex additive. It's kind of expensive, has anyone used it it their ATV or any other vehicle?

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s
