Maybe through the pull start??
DO NOT run the motor on the deisel except to turn it over a couple times, between changes. (Pull off the plug wire if you have to.) It is thin so it will help flush the water. Don't use gasoline.I would use Diesel
i ripped off the gasket that was on it and put my own gasket maker on it. which still leaks but no where near the pulley, only about one inch total in there.I don't know if you checked, but the leak shields leak. Mine did, and so did alot of others.
This wasnt from a dealer. This was from a local cycle shop. This isnt even half the mess i got from letting them replace the shaft. I took the motor out myself and brought it to them. Told them what happened and that the output shaft was bent and needed to be replaced along with whatever bearings or gaskets needed to be replaced as well. Well after about 4 weeks i finally get my motor back, head straight for my uncles house and start to put the motor back in. Well after about 6 hours everything but the plastic was back together. Go to fire it up...but it was in 4th gear, so i hit the down shift button and got nothing. Hit the upshift and it went to fifth. Try to manual down shift it with the tool and it wouldnt let me do it. So i brought the whole atv down to them and told them to fix it since they did something wrong.All these dealer horror stories, makes me glad I didnt buy the warranty, then i would be tempted to let them try to fix anything wrong with it. I think I would just rather do it myself!
Franks Cycle Center off Wickham Rd.Which cycle shop was it? There are a couple here in Melbourne that ae good.
