I have mine collecting dust in the garage. I will try to remember to weigh it tonight. If you don't see me post it up by 11 tonight. Send me a reminder.

I've got the IMS 3.2gal and it works with Works Connection Rad braces/stock rads and the stock plastics.

Hope this helps..

My CRF leaked out all its tranny fluid.

I had a look, and it seems that it's the output shaft seal behind the front sprocket.

Motor oil level is fine.


So did some research and it seems that you can pull the seal and replace without splitting the cases, but it looks like a fiddly job.


While I have the thing down, I would also like to address the Clutch grab issue.

What happens is you get no fine "clutch release".

As you let out the clutch its like this

...nothing...nothing...nothing: FULLRELEASE


which is not a porn-tastic as it sounds.

Clutch does not slip, it just is like an ON/OFF switch


What do you guys think the issue might be there? What to look for?

No/low trans fluid level will wreck your clutch. Pull the clutch cover off and inspect the plates. Look for hot spots on the metal plates and glazing on the fiber ones. Also look to see if the clutch basket is grooved where the plates contact it. How many hours do you have on that motor and when was the last time you replaced the clutch?

I took the bike on a weekend dualsport and only noticed a little weeping at the end of the trip.
The oil did not really come out until after it was parked. Of course it's impossible to really know because they
did not see fit to put a freaking dipstick on the transmission oil. Gotta keep the weight down, huh?
I was running a full quart of oil in the trans, FWIW. The bike is a 2005.

I have no idea how many hours are on the bike or clutch.
I see parts and pieces in my future!
thanks!
--Nick

When you buy your seal and clutch parts pick up an hour meter. They don't cost much and make it easyer to keep track of the maint. I bought one when I bought my CRF/X and base all of my work off of that and my service notes. BTW, hot spots on the metal plates will make a clutch "grabby".

I'm running the acerbis tank, and love it. I never run out of gas, and the tank protects the radiators. It does a good job of it, too. I know

Your ctrshaft seal was ruined because you had the chain too tight. If you are going to get it wrong its better to miss on the slightly loose end. Adjust it correctly or you will become an expert at this job.

That is my conclusion too!
So the proper method is:

Bike on stand such that the rear wheel is in the air, and suspension is fully extended.

At the end of the chain slider (top) push down on the chain and measure from top of chain to bottom of swing arm.
Push up on chain and measure to stop of swing arm.
Difference should be 25-30mm (~1 inch).

Sound about right?
