Re-seal a 6-Speed Transmission

Recommended Posts

This bike has only 5,000 miles. There is no noticeable gear wear. But I do think it's worth removing as much rust as possible from the output shaft. I'll remove the rust from the driveshaft too - then use Staburags grease for the splines (that's the recommended lube for BMW K-bike splines, but the Guzzi is assembled dry).

 

The seals all looked good and with such low mileage I decided to leave them in. Just put a little gear oil around the lip when you re-assemble.

 

First time I did this I was really nervous. But I've done three now, and the other two work. Like a lot of things, it's not so hard once you get into it. And a tranny service can be very expensive.

Excellent documentation and photographs!  This is one of those projects that we hope we never need to do, but when we do, it's great to have the step by step procedure already done and available.  Thanks for posting.
