I pulled the bolt and all looked well except that some of the old plumbers tape looked obsolete in areas. I never had an issue with the neutral switch not functioning properly, so I re-taped and put...

So this darn neutral position sensor has been my issue all along. Unfortunately the bolt in the other motor I have is used as well. Both bolts are probably fine, but the one on my bike isn't sealed...

So I took her for a short test run. Good thing, she's leaking there's no tomorrow. Not from the countershaft seal!!! It's bone dry! The leak is coming from a bolt just below and to the right that has...

Well everything is back together now in one piece. Yes, I did replace basically everything new. The o-ring, spacer, seal, new nut and cup washer, as well as a small washer that goes behind the cup...

Well, I've checked the area just above the countershaft bore that I believe to be the clutch actuator shaft. I think it's the shaft where the clutch cable connects to the top of the engine, slightly...

I've been wondering myself if there's a possibility the leak might be coming from somewhere else. The marr in the bore case for the sprocket isn't horrible and a little sealant should be more than...

Yeah it's funny you mention the spring washer. The last mechanic I had work on it used a slightly different nut and washer setup that didn't appear to put much tension on the o-ring seal. In fact the...

Thanks for this info about the front sprocket. Something I was always curious about. You're also right about that link to the KTM LC4 640 thread. It's been pretty helpful. I'm still curious about...

Thanks for the suggestions on sealants for the outer edge of the seal surface. However, I can't go along with just letting it to continue leaking oil. An automatic chain oiler sounds nice, but not...

I see what you mean about a thicker sprocket than the other LC4 models. I noticed this in parts diagrams. My Duke does indeed have this and hasn't been changed at all from stock. It's a 17 tooth...

Well, though I appreciate the response I'm a little confused. I wouldn't say 6,100 miles is high-mileage, especially since I ride strictly street. The expense of replacing bushings, seals, and...

Hello all,

I've been so frustrated about this issue for so long I'm not sure where to even start.

Well, today I had a chance to try and reverse the wires from the bypass unit I installed this weekend. Not suprisingly, that didn't work either. So for now, the wiring for the kickstand safety switch...

Well, I tried the zip-ties and the spring wouldn't budge. However my father had the idea to compress the shock with a 12 ton bottle jack he had. We wedged the shock in a doorway and once the spring...
