    I had my clutch out of my vf 500 86 and when i put it back together I
    now have an oil leak out the clutch piston rod
    Did i miss a seal or what
    The bloody oil is coming right across the engine from right to left
    help appreciated

    Thanks older man
    The bike being so old I will have to fashion this seal myself
    The bike is an american import
    It was imported to eire about 12 years ago
    trouble free and quite a head turner
    unless its the same seal as a vfr
    Is this possible?

  4. ITYF that these seals are pretty universal - in other words, the same
    seal is used for many bikes.

    Why not ask a Honda dealer?

  5. NO! That's silly!

    I looked at www.partsfish.com and on the engine block fiche for a 1985
    Interceptor, I found item #15 is an oil seal, with dimensions of
    8mm X 25mm X 8mm

    Is that the seal you need? Check it out...

    Bearings and oil seals aren't unique. Honda doesn't make their own

    If you take those are the right numbers call up a bearing and oil seal
    supply company, they can find you a seal that will do what you want...

    I plugged it with a temporary seal for now anywaybut
    when i drove it it was burning spilt oil off the engine I thought it
    was going to catch fire at one stage however it will get me from a to
    b and one good thing about it is that she starts on the button as they

  7. Next time, let it, and claim on the insurance.
