1998 Yamaha Timberwolf fb250 4x2 shaft seal replacement


Recommended Posts

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

There might be a manual in here..  Up the top, "more", service manuals, then in the new page a way down on the right choose your make and have a browse.

The way it's probably meant to be done is to take the other side case off and undo a circlip or something and pull the shaft back through.
