Dennis was kind enough to drop off his 2012 that needs work.
First up is the inner Shaft Seals. This is the second time I’ve done this repair. Naturally this makes me an expert on the matter 🙂

The inner seals pretty much leak all over. Easy enough to tell. The inner shaft will leak out through the drain hole at the end of the shaft. Luckily for Dennis, this wasn’t the case.
- Remove the rear tire.
- Drain the drive oil
- Clean off the bolts and any grime that might be in them. Previously, I removed the pumpkin from the shaft, but this time, it made more sense to leave the whole thing on.
- Remove the bolts. The Pumpkin has two pry locations (one towards the back, one towards the front). I used a large flat screwdriver that was taped up with electrical tape, not to score or mark up the face of the cover. Cover will pop off easily.
Slap the whole thing back on the pumpkin. Push it on so each bolt starts with about two to three threads. Don’t forget the washers.
Fill the drive with oil. Check for leaks. The work should take roughly 1.5 hours from wheel off, to wheel on.
