‘04 650 countershaft seal leaking

DF37BAFC-9A74-4556-B95E-0ADF3769ED54_1553706431723.jpg I have an oil leak, I just can’t stand anymore. It was doing a fantastic job of auto-oiling my chain, but making a horrible mess. Took me a bit to track it down, but it appears to be coming from the countershaft seal behind the front sprocket.

I’ve replaced a few of these on KTM 2-strokes, and my DRZ, but wanted to consult the Strom masses before I order replacements.

‘04 650. Should I try just replacing this o-ring? Number 20 in the diagram? Or the oil seal as well number 21?


When I’ve removed the seal on other bikes, I used the drill and sheet metal screw method. Anyone have experience removing this seal?

Thanks for your Inputs.

I posted on the other forum.

I wouldn't consider NOT replacing O-ring and seal. That piece in your hand... Be sure there's no groove worn into it where the seal rides. If so, replace it.
