Theres only one crank seal that could leak trans oil and it would leak into the crankcase and smoke like hell when running. If its leaking onto the ground its probably the shift shaft seal ,countershaft seal or gasket on the drainplug .

countershaft seal is behind the sprocket.

both the shift shaft and countershaft seals are easy to fix.

there is also a shifter cover on the early dt175 (1974-1976) (held on with four bolts behind shifter) - it has a rubber o-ring around it that could leak, but that's doubtful.. what year is your dt175?


it could also leak between the crankcase halves. or a cracked case could leak... or even the clutch cover could leak.

CS seal would not have pooled oil behind it, little higher than the level. It would leak while running. Likely shifter seal, or clutch push rod as well.

As stated, easy to replace in situ. Just did it on my RT1 plus the crank seals as well.

Do you go to the Yamahaenduro.com website. Dedicated forum for these old bikes there.

thanks for the responses.
i have joined the yahamaenduro site as well.
this one is phenomenal though!

i am going to replace both the shift shaft and crankshaft seals.
the year of my bike is a 1980 dt175cc
so i don't know if it will have the o-ring you speak of, though i will look.
(ps:i really hope this bike runs better now that i've got por15 all over my hands from lining the incredibly rusted gas tank. looks to have done a pretty good job. thousands upon thousands of times better shape than it was prior.)

on the other side of the bike, is there a gasket for the gearbox cover or anything? that looks like it could potentially be leaking as well.

thanks a ton for the replies folks!

shop manual

please don't take this as me being a dick, but...

maybe you should get a repair manual for the bike? that would, at the very least, help you identify the parts you are talking about, and give you some reference points as to what all is going on with the bike and what people on this site giving you advice are speaking about. seriously, every single bike i ever tear into at some point or another has some moment where i am elbow deep in engine parts saying to myself "what the hell is this?" moments like those, a shop manual can be worth its weight in gold. other times, shop manuals can also be just obscure enough to frustrate the hell out of you, but most of the time they are a very solid investment.

re the seals you are talking about, the shop guy was right - "the two seals on the left side of the bike." both of them can be replaced pretty easily, as has already been mentioned. if you are careful, you don't even have to drain the oil, just lay the bike on the right hand side and work on it there. there are also crankshaft seals, one on either side of the engine, they serve to keep the engine oil OUT of the crankcase, which is itself lubricated by the premix or autolube oil. they do need periodic replacement, and usually this involves tearing the engine almost all the way apart. they are in no way related to why your gearbox oil is appearing outside the engine instead of inside where it belongs.

no offense taken. you're right.

i think i have the manual somewhere.
as these maintenance parameters are so elementary, (aside from knowing the names, i've seen youtube vids, and read some threads that have given me the info i should need.

i've used a manual or 7 before. just being lazy i 'spose.

thanks for the replies.

how does one load pics up? through a third party site or server? not directly to the website correct?
