There seems to be some prob with seal centering while re-assembling otherwise kick shaft seals normally don't leak. If you have changed 2-3 seals by now, ask them to replace the cover plate as well. Might be illogical but sometimes it works for RE.

Looks like, I made my decision at the right time.

confirm that the oil seen dripping from the bottom of the seal is not oil from the chain. there is a possibility that the chain oil that gets splashed on the top part of the cover, collects and drips down appearing to be from the seal. open the cover without cleaning the oil and check. new vehicles are shipped with excess oil on the chain.

just a thought. it may be the seal itself.

I can see the same thing in my 500. Infact there is more oil, I believe it's droping from the chain itself.

Are you facing any problem with chain. It makes kad-kad-kad noise in 4th and 5th gear and on spead breaker. Is it due to loose chain?

From all I have read till now, I have decided to stick with my well run in and fuss free stock form LB 500 - I am not seeing enough in the new bike to make a switch, and expose myself to the chancing of the arm that is still a part of buying a new RE and be sure of getting a defect free one! I know the LB 500 is discontinued, so that is a problem perhaps, but Indian ingenuity will find a way...
Also, I use the kick start for early morning first starts to save the starter motor/motor gears, and finding that the ks has been eliminated is not something I am too thrilled to hear.

I second this. Just back from the dealer. The oil is splashing from the chain and coming down.
He has adjusted the chain but still there is this kad-kad noise over the speed breaker. Not sure if you guys are facing this.

The kick is pretty much there. Though not as stubborn as the days of old but pretty much there.

In fact, I haven't used the electric start more than twice. The old fashioned way makes me feel more in touch with it. (dramebaaz)

This is the leak after it was replaced for the first time and changed again today along with the plate. For all those who think its from the chain then look carefullyName:  Seal.jpg

@virtualhemant- I think you are using bigger gear in slow speeds. Don't drive it like a Std 350.

Oh, thanks for that. Now I have to think all over again! I think it was on the overseas sites that I must have read about the ks being absent on the 500s. Good to hear that this is not the case in India.
