Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Clutch oil seal

Post by paul1098 on Sun 23 Apr 2017, 12:47 am

Anyone managed to change the oil seal on clutch operating rod from the outside?

I was hoping to do it as a quick fix to a very slight weep rather than pulling clutch cover off.

No it can't be done from the outside. 
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but to remove the operating arm/rod the plunger and spring needs to be disconnected from the inside. 
It's not a difficult job though, keep the bike on the sidestand to minimize oil loss. The gasket may need replacing depending on your luck.

I was hoping I could do it without removing the rod by creating a seal puller with 3 screws.

Think I'll get myself a gasket just in case as I'm not overly lucky.

The flaw with your plan is that the arm is welded to the shaft so the seal wouldn't pass over it.
Having a gasket handy is the approach that I take. You may not need one but it would sure be better to have a spare gasket than not have one.

That would be a slight flaw.
I've got a case protector on so can't see top of arm & I just assumed it would be bolted.

In which case that will have to come off to allow the shaft to be removed.

I'll just cut the top of it off as not sure how easy it'll be to get it off as it's fixed with silicone.
