Shifter leak?

I had noticed since Ive owned this bike a wet spot around the shifter. About 7000 miles later still wet. Just enough to say its wet..Never built up to a drip.. I have looked throught the verses and all other mail and cannot find anything about a possible seal there. Is there a seal or what is there to seal that shaft. Thanks for your responsed. Amsoil Man

Doesn't appear to be any sort of seal according to www.bikebandit.com

i'll take a look at my cases when I go out to the garage later.

Seems to me I remember a small o ring in there, but I may be wrong.

85 VN750 basketcase ( yes its a true 750, and no smog controls, its good to be Canadian)
It will have
a rebuilt 96 top end, rebuilt 85 bottom end
degoated, Eared
stripped, lowered, raked, bobbed,
reed valve boxes shaved
ported and polished
balanced
right side dump exhaust
heads and cylinders shaved for compression
looking for smoothbore sidedraft carbs
possibly fat bob tanks
modified vn800 or sportster drag pipes or I'll just make some

Unless I'm way off, there is an oil seal there. 92051-005. I replaced mine when I did my stator. Cannot replace it without pulling the engine, so wait until you do your stator and then do it.

There is a small oil seal around the shifter shaft
Parts found with Part Number: 92051-005
Description OIL SEAL,TB13225.5
Price $3.57
Hard part is getting the old one out and replacing it without pulling the stator cover which requires an engine pull/tilt.
Clymers says you should be able to pry it out and then reset the new one in place using a socket to tap it in (pg 30)

I was wrong. I looked up the shift linkage on BikeBandit. The oil seal was listed under Engine Covers. $3.83 and some work to replace as other have said.
