Yes this is the best oilhead forum. Hands down.

I finally got all the parts from Chicago BMW. Bigred455 came over this morning for moral and technical support and ended up spending the whole day here helping me get the thing back together. He's very skilled.

Here's how we replaced the front seal on the transmission. Drilled two small holes in the seal, partially screwed in some wood screws and levered the seal out by grabbing the screw heads with pliers and used a block and big screw driver for fulcrum and lever then tapped in the new seal with a deep well socket 'til the socket bottomed on the shaft then finished tapping it in with the old seal. Like Buttah.

Paul. '04 R1100S w/Íhlins an' stuff, '09 Buell 1125cr, '08 Suzi SV650A, '00 Suzi SV650, '97 328i (with sticky ass tires - I love this car even though its just a car). And the bikes I used to own: '68 Bultaco 100, '69 Honda CL450, '71 Kawasaki Mach III, '71 OSSA Pioneer, '72 Honda MR175, '72 Benelli 250, '75 Yamaha RD350 (then college), '83 Honda VF750F (then kids),'96 MZ Skorpion, '99 R1100S, '01 SV650 and '94 Honda VFR750F - most wrecked.
