Small leak from shifter! Aughhhhh!

Just noticed a small leak like a microscopic leak coming from the bearing that surrounds the shift linkage, I notice it has a holder of some sort? i'm thining about loosening the holder and slightly tapping the bearing in?good idea or no? I looked through the manuel but had no luck finding this ? going to look again!

Bearing?
I think you mean the oil seal around the shift shaft?
I don't know if it's possible to replace the seal without opening the engine but I would assume you can.
If there's room you could try gluing another seal over the leaking one with silicone. I did this on a VTR250 (which requires splitting the engine to get the old seal out) and it worked just fine. As far as I know it's still working fine but the guy I did it for sold the bike a couple of years ago.

Re: Small leak from shifter! Aughhhhh!

I thought it was a bearing by the looks of it, so the only way to replace this seal is to open the engine? or just a case on that side here's a pic of what im talking about...

I don't know as I haven't had to do one on these engines but if it has a clamp to keep it in then I would assume you can dig it out and replace it without opening the engine.
It does look like there's plenty of room to put another seal over the leaking one if you prefer to but you'd have to put a spacer on the clamp bolt so it clamps on the new seal.

Not a lot of meat in that seal so let us know if you manage to dig it out without removing the shaft.
