Front Diff. leaking

Hello, i went riding today and noticed that when i unloaded my rincon out of my truck there was a puddle of oil in my bed and under further investigation i found that my front diff. is leaking around the left axle, where it goes into the diff. Do you guys think this is just a seal leaking or something else? thanks in advance.

Sounds like a leaking seal. I wouldn't necessarily recommend rebuilding the whole diff even though you can get a diff rebuild kit for like 40 bucks from all balls. But I'd just buy the kit since that one seal at the Honda shop would probably run like 8 bucks or somethin ridiculous. And change seals as you need in the future. It's pretty easy to get to. You can probably do it without removing the diff actually. Just take out your axle and pop out the old seal with a screwdriver real carefully.

X2, sounds like just the axle seal leaking.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Well I get mine at a place in town. They usually have everything in stock. If you don't have a bearing shop anywhere nearby then I'd try eBay

Go to motosport's parts fiche....get the dimensions of the seal...plug those dimensions into ebay's search engine...and i'd bet you'll find that seal for less then $8.

i've done this many times.

Honda seals are built better than the cheaper ones, that's why they cost a little more. You get what you pay for...

We compared the same seal from all balls to a honda seal and there is a definite difference, the honda seal seems to be built using more durable rubber and it doesn't have the spring in the center to hold the seal against the part. Hence why you can remove and re-install the same seal into a honda part.

IMO, spend the extra little bit on the honda seal.

Does anyone know where I can find the procedure to replace the front diff seal or is it pretty straight forward. Thanks

It's pretty straightforward. Once you get the axle out, it just pries out and the new one just presses back in. Also, you can go to the manuals/schematics section of the forums and download the service manual, but I don't know how much info it has on changing a seal.
