Bike is a 2002 R1150RT. I had to pull the alternator support housing to get the alternator out for servicing. After putting it back together I had an oil leak from the front crank seal. Guess I messed it up in putting the housing back on the engine.
Took it apart again and pulled the HES plate and installed a new seal with the housing still attached to the engine. After a 70 mile ride today, I noticed a little oil seepage down the front. The manual calls for a special sleeve when installing the seal: I guess to protect the seal from the crank when installing. I used a piece of plastic tubing as a drift when installing the seal. Worked perfect.
Any suggetions on what I should do to install the next one? Do I need some type of protection over the crank?
