I`m not sure what you mean by a shift shaft seal. There is a washer and a circlip both inside and outside the engine cover to keep the shaft from sliding in and out, but no seal shown in the diagram I am looking at.

What is the problem? Is there oil dripping from the shaft exit?
Or does the shaft slide in and out of the hole?

If the circlip has been displaced on the inside, the cover does need to come off to replace it.
HOWEVER, if you just want to eliminate the "slop", take off the shift lever and shim the shaft out with some flat washers, then reinstall the lever.

Yeah....it leaks oil.
There is a oil seal in there which you can see in Bike Bandit's parts blow up.
I need to know the numbers on the seal. NOT THE PART NUMBER. On the seal, like all oil seals, there will be three numbers. The first one will be the outside measurement.......the second will be inside........the third will be the thickness.
An example would look like this 35/25/8.
Most all of the seals on Motorcycles can be purchased at a good auto supply and are always cheaper, if you know the numbers!!
It would take me forever to get a seal from any kind of dealer so I always try the auto parts way first.
If anyone has a shift shaft seal and could give me the numbers on it I would be a happy camper!!!!
Thanks

I checked a new seal and it has no numbers on it. I will try to match one up by measurements. The seal is easily replaced by removing the shifter then remove the old seal and install the new one.

Thanks for the info...
My shifter slides back and forth (has rubbed a spot on the frame)
I assume a cir clip is off on the inside. Will it hurt the bike to run this way?
I was thinking of removing the shifter and placing washers/spacers then reinstalling the shifter.
I see no washer or circlip on the outside of the case. Do you think the oil seal is not seated?
Comments?

Thanks Rick
