A word of caution

    Recently I became painfully aware that the crank seals in my KTM 200 engine needed replaced.

    Part of what you have to go through to get to the right crank seal is take the clutch basket/inner hub along with the primary gear off to get to the seal.

    Along with the other stuff I got for this from Rocky Mountain ATV I got a Tusk Clutch holding tool. See the picture.

    I stripped the engine down to the point where I could get the clutch off and put the tool on the inner clutch hub as the video instructed.

    Using the appropriate size socket and a breaker bar I managed to destroy the inner clutch hub. Again see picture.

    This little misadventure only cost me about $85.00 for the new part.

    If you are faced with this repair either be very careful, ask Bubba Victory, or other people higher on the knowledge food chain, or do the unmanly thing and pay some one to do it.
