Hey there,

So I just got this bike, 99 gsxr 600, w/ 20k miles. There's oil coming from the gear shaft (I think the seal isn't working) and it's coming out from the bearing (#31 and #32 are the areas I'm speaking about). I'm not a mechanic but I figured out where it's coming from. It was recommended by a friend to add a seal conditioner to the oil as it MIGHT fix it. Anyone have thoughts on that or experience with that ?

Apparently to complicate matters, I understand additives to oil are tricky since it's a wet clutch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. And if someone knows of a cheap mechanic that's good in Southern NH who could fix this for real that would be great !

Its worth a shot for a quick temporary fix but regardless that seal will need to be replaced.

i guess you have to ask yourself if its cheaper to fix it now, or replace the whole engine on an assumption it might work. i would not put that stuff in my bike...remember the oil shares not only the engine but the transmission as well as the clutch, and these engines spin at rpm's way more then standard engines. i understand you might be trying to find an inexpensive way of fixing your oil leak problem, but i dont think this will make it go away, and in the long run will end up costing you more.....imo

Weather or not you screw up the bike just depends on how fast its leaking. If its a slow leak then you can probably get away with riding for a little while longer untill you can get it fixed. Just make sure you check the oil everytime you ride it. Anyway, good luck man, sorry to hear you got jippe, fix the bike and have fun!

I posted on one of his previous threads about this. I was the one to initially tell him he got screwed in the deal and try to get his money back, but since that didn't happen and he screwed a new rider, I feel bad for you. You have mechanical background which will def help. Get yourself a Haynes manual for the bike to help yu with the step by step and torque specs. It is going to be a little of work but if you have the time, go for it, then post a send him pictures f you riding it with a tasteful message like F*ck Off or something.
