Honda 650 Transalp

A person selling a Honda 650 Transalp  ( XL ? ) for £999 on Gumtree. Claims it needs an oil seal changing behind the front chain sprocket !  Says " Its weeping oil slightly and the oil seal needs changing " . " It`s a quick pull out and pop in job " and the oil seal " is just a few quid " .  (or words to that effect .). From my experience of oil seal changes my instinct tells me that it`s an engine out job and the crankcases split . Surely the oil seal has pressure behind it and there fore is not a quick pull out ,push in job?

Transalp

Hi Cundalini. The oil seal does pop out when the single bolt retainer is removed but a leaking seal may be a symptom of a worn output shaft bearing, usually due to running with an over tight chain..and thats a different story.
