does anyone know for sure when the dealer replaces the counter sprocket seal do they have to split the case? I have talked with a service rep and someone from discount and they said no. I have a 2013 675r.

Just got off the phone with Triumph USA. You have to split the case to replace the counter sprocket seal. I have scheduled a appointment for extreme machine to take a look at it. Big job for big money I hope Triumph covers this work???

P.S. I have been told this is not uncommon for the 2013 Triumph daytona 675r.

I highly recommend you checkout the how to section. There's a member here that has change his sprocket seal already and going on 200+ miles, riding it hard and hot and no leaks at all. I'll be doing this fix myself too. I saw a YouTube vid and it's very easy to do.

I had mine done under warranty, no need to split the case, did not even have to drain the oil.

IIRC TJ from RD said you can pull the old stuff out without splitting the case. Had the dealership do it under warranty so I don't see why yours won't do the same.

I will try to do it myself but I am afraid i will damage the case by pulling the lip out on the seal? I have been told to try water proof grease around it to help slow the oil weeping out? I really don't want to split the case until something major goes wrong with the engine. The bike is at Mark built racing in Millville NJ. I might have him try to fix the seal and see if he can do it like the other member did w/o splitting the case. Thank you for the replies.
