Default Front Diff Leak on the prairie

Well after riding some and loading up I see some spots in the front where the front diff is leaking.. Thinking its just a seal from either the main input shaft or the exterior output shaft.. SHould not be to hard a fix. Just a pain to get at.. Will order the parts soon and get some pics of the repairs.. Not bad for a 10 year old quad with over 3k miles on it.

Should be an easy fix for you, Mr. Fixit. But a 10 year old quad with only 3000 miles? You need to be riding more. Blackie will be 5 yrs old in sept, and she has right at 5700

Its the rear seal on the front diff that needs to be replaced. Found the issue yesterday. Not sure if it needs to come out or not but hopoing that I can just order that one seal and that will fix it.

Ok the seal has been replaced.. Kinda of pain but not to hard.. Just time consuming.. Just have to get some oil for the front and then finish the oil change and it will be good to go..

Seal has been replaced. It was a pain to change but I will post pics of the seal later tonight when I get home. Still have a little work to finish up the brakes but they are about a 20 minute per side and that will not take to long..

Here are the pics of the seal that needed to be changed.. Its about the size of a coke can.. Not bad to change but really a pain since the front drive shaft doesn't want to come out
