oil leak question

Have a small bit of oil coming out where the clutch cable goes into the engine. The little mechanical part that the cable goes into on the right side. How do I go about fixing that?

Order up a new seal, p/n 92049-1560 SEAL-OIL (double check that part number at your favorite vendor). It's about $5.

Remove the clutch cable from the case and then the arm, then rotate the arm back and pull it up.

Carefully pry this seal out of the case:

And even more carefully install the new seal.

Reverse the order of dis-assembly.

Sweet looks not to hard. It has 95K km on it now. Looks like my worm drive on my old 84 vt500c which I had to do.

Easy fix, especially with Toms help.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
