Re: gearbox shaft

If you state what model bike you have, someone may perhaps jump in with advice. Also, you can identify the parts needed at and order online. If that doesn't work, post what exactly the problem is and I'm sure you'll find assistance in this forum, if it relates to a K1200LT that is. If you prefer you can also send me a private message in the other language.

Re: gearbox shaft

I have a k1200lt 2007 model 30 thousand km on the clock.
Clutch was replaced 3 times within 1000km due to oil on the clutch..

Dealer found slave cylinder fine. Found leak on gearbox seal.
Also found rust on shaft an he suspects this damaged the seal. Can source everything in Namibia exept for the shaft. Was advised to look for a part in Germany. Would like to find out if anyone herehad a similar problem and have any suggetsions. Dealersuspects previous owner might have driven through water frequently. Also would welcome some advice on where to source the part. I do have the part number.

Would appreciate any help

Re: gearbox shaft

Jaque Andre,

Investigate whether you could use a "Speedy Sleeve" on your old shaft. Speedy sleeves press onto a shaft that is worn and give the seal a new surface to ride on. I have used these things on many applications with great success. Sure would be an easy, cost effective solution to your problem. Good luck.

Here's a link...
