Oil Seal on Gear Shift Shaft

What would have caused the seal around the manual shifting gear shaft to dislodge? I understand that high pressure in crank case would cause this seal to dislodge but what would have caused the pressure? I pushed it back into place and seems to be holding. Should I replace the seal anyway?

Check your crankcase breather hose, it could be plugged or possible the little white elbow into the air box. It happened to me. With regards to the seal I would change it next time you change oil. ( Make sure you keep an eye on it though if you wait)

just make sure the clean the shaft before sliding the new seal on. Use a fine grit sand paper to clean it up.
