f-5snopro,

Let me try yo get this straight:

1) You have had 1 new set of upper and lower bearings and O-rings put in and it did not stop the leak

2) You then have put a completle new chaincase and another new set of upper & lower bearings and new O-rings on when the new chaincase was installed.

Is this the correct series of events, and your chaincase still is leaking????

A good quality rtv silicone where the o rings go in place-Both my f5s where leaking on upper jackshift-Make sure o rings dont get pinched and use rtv silicone-Honestly some of my zr500s leaked there also,has been a problem with cat for some time-2004 zr900-no chaincase no leak-Use some silicone and you should be fine-just make sure everything is clean and no oily residue so rtv can stick and setup-both my f5s not a drop since-scott

the chaincase and bearings were replaced at the same time and now its leaking again. i may have them try the rtv method , if that does not work im going to try something with the old chaincase and try to correc the design myself ............i do love the f-5 though ! :wub:

Try some liquid gasket, its sold in als snowmobile magazine and comes in a bottle and dries like a gasket and is specially used for spots where liquids are invloved like anti-freeze, oil, or gas or somthin. Order a magazine or just try to find it at www.alssnowmobile.com

Ill second the question

I had a drippy chaincase and the oring on the ID of the LOWER BEARING (i have never seen on a bearing like this before) will get pushed out of the bearing if the jackshaft is rammed into it. There is NO mystery reason for a chaincase leaking.

No offense, but..... if your dealer has some yellowed haired, 5.75/ hr guy working in the shop, this will happen.
