So I pressed it in a little better this time and it’s still leaking a few drops at a time. Not sure if I should try it at the track to see if it stops or tear it apart for the third time and replace it. I’m so damn frustrated at this point and don’t ... more »

If I go it will be Sunday as well. I think a lot of guys who work at dealerships and in other areas of the industry race events like this and can't make it Saturday, so I feel like Sunday will be the best day. Should be a great event either way.

I’m definitely thinking about it. Track and weather should be awesome. I wonder which day will have the best turn out? If I decide to go I’ll be in 25 novice

Jeez that sucks. I've already cracked the subframe where the pipes mount twice on my 15. First time just welded over the crack but the last time I actually had it reenforced. Will keep an eye out for that area. Would Honda still take care of that now ... more »

Tore it apart tonight to check everything out. Threw the installer collars on and Looks like the seal was nowhere near pressed in where it needed to be. I’m actually suprised it didn’t leak more yesterday. Buttoned everything back up, warmed the bike ... more »

Partzilla has the 32x35 attachment tool for $33, this is the part of the tool that changed from the 13-16 bike. Luckily the installer collars stayed the same. Gonna order that and hopefully I can get this bastard pressed in perfect. Here's the link for ... more »

Added reply in a thread CRF450 Black residue near weep hole/ Mechanical seal 5/10/2021 10:49 AM

Well fortunately I was able to ride yesterday but it did leak a little out of the weep hole. I swear the shaft has to be pressed onto the seal just right or it doesn’t work. So frustrating. If it doesn’t work this next time I might take it to a shop ... more »

Added reply in a thread 2020 CRF250 left side coolant weep 5/10/2021 10:40 AM

Maybe I’m blind, but I don’t see anything. And yeah no reason for coolant to be on that side of the motor. Maybe check your radiator hoses and make sure the hose clamps are tight.

All disassembled, cleaned and ready for the new parts to go in tomorrow morning. There was a bunch of oil dried up oil behind the mechanical seal. Wish me luck guys. Monday is my birthday and my only wish is to ride on Sunday.

So after starting the bike and getting up to operating temp 4-5 times over the past couple days with zero issues, I got done working on another bike in my garage and noticed a puddle of coolant under mine. Start it up and it’s leaking coolant like crazy

I’d say probably not. They will ride press day at Pala on Friday so I doubt they’ll be at Glen Helen that Thursday. I would buy the three day ticket and go watch press day Friday.

Replaced the oil seal and bearing behind the mechanical seal. All new gaskets and crush washers. The shaft looked fine and I didn’t see a reason to mess with the mechanical seal since it was never leaking water. But I ordered one and have it if I need ... more »

I’ve been wondering this too. Looked on 2x promotions site and didn’t see anything about an amateur day.

I might be in the minority here but the 18-21 CRF250 was one of the best looking bikes ever made. I bet the 21 is lightyears ahead of the 18 with reliability and power. I wonder if they are staying with the dual cams for 22.

Agreed. Did you end up switching to something else or just have the sole repaired?
