Salam all. I want to discuss something that I have not seen on previous threads on PWs. Last year I went to muree on my cg125 classic 2008. One week after I came back the bike's engine oil started leaking from the left side. I had the seals changed from my local mechanic. 4 months later the seals again gave way and this time I got them changed from another mechanic. Now after 3 months again engine oil was dripping from left side. But this time I thought to buy original seals from a honda 5s dealer. Today when I went to change the seals the mechanic said that these seals will not fit your bike. He said your bike is old and you need over sized seals. The bike was already open so I had no option but to go with his seals. He says seals break after 5 to 6 months and that is normal in all bikes.
I want to ask following questions:
1. is there something called oversized seals? do older bikes have different seal sizes?
2. is it normal to change engine seals after 5 or 6 months? This is the first time someone has said this to me!
3. I asked a couple of other mechanics in my area and one said when bike gets very hot seals break and the other said if you wash your bike while it is hot then seals will break. Are they right?
Brothers I have very busy schedule and I am very fed up with this engine leaking. Kindly suggest a remedy. If my mechanic was lying about oversized seals then I am never going to him again.
I am hoping that all bike riders would give their opinion.
