GSF1250S/SA / GSX1250FA / GSX650F Clutch Pushrod Seal Retainer / Seal Saver
After having my clutch pushrod oil seal fail, which caused a major leak of engine oil to pour out of the seal and run down the side of my engine, I replaced the seal, and then I decided to do something to protect the oil seal from all of the built-up dirt and sand that sticks to the built-up chain lube that accumulates on the pushrod, and that then gets pushed into the seal as the clutch pushrod moves in and out each time the clutch is operated.
I have always looked at the unprotected clutch pushrod seal as weak design point by Suzuki, and I have always thought that having all of that built up dirt and sand on the pushrod getting pushed into the oil seal was not good for the it, and at some point would lead to the seal failing, which it finally did.
So to help protect the oil seal, I came up with the idea of a new seal retainer plate to replace the stock seal retainer, which does absolutely nothing to protect the oil seal from the dirt and sand on the pushrod from getting pushed into it.
This new clutch pushrod oil seal retainer/seal saver is 3/8” thick and has a very small clearance hole for the push rod, and since the clutch pushrod moves less than 3/16” when the clutch is actuated, and with the much smaller hole for the pushrod, it will keep any built-up dirt and sand on the push rod from getting into the oil seal. I have also incorporated an oil resistant o-ring wiper seal on the back side of the retainer plate as an additional means of protecting the oil seal.
If your bike has a lot of mileage on it, I highly recommend installing a new clutch push rod oil seal along with my new oil seal retainer/seal saver.
It mounts using the stock oil seal retainer mounting screws, and comes supplied with the o-ring pushrod wiper seal as well as two extra wiper seals, and detailed easy to follow installation instructions.
