Re: Drilled into the cluch rod oil seal housing, best material to fill it with?
Got the tool from Gordon and new seal off Amazon (couldn't wait for the local dealer to get one) and installed it over the weekend. Looks OK to me and didn't leak when I ran it on 5th gear for like 15 minutes.
Since I'm a dumb-ass, I pulled the clutch (force of habit I guess) when I put it in gear with the slave cylinder still hanging by the side. Once it made a fairly loud "pop", I knew I just added a considerable amount of extra work and possibly broke the brand new slave cylinder. Darn. Luckily there was no damage and the internals went back in easily, guess the cir-clip retaining groove has a little chamfer for idiots like me to prevent the housing from breaking.
I also learned that you do not have to loosen up the exhaust to get the swingarm on/off..
Anyhoo, here's a pic with the new seal, it's not even near as deep as the "old" one. Gordon; I'll mail the seal driver back to you as soon as I get a few road miles to verify it doesn't leak for reals. It'll some time later this week. Awesome tool btw., thanks once more.
