super easy,even by a novice.its probably one of the easiest jobs to do on our bikes.Not to hijack this thread, But I believe I have an oil leak coming from the shifter on my 82' Honda CX500. By this post it seems like an easy fix. I was going to take it in, but was worried about cost. Is this easily done by a novice? Thanks in advance

as above and a step by step.
As all have stated, an in expensive fix--seal about $5 and takes less than 5 min----even for a novice as me. I did mine 2 months ago.-- no leaks. Again no need to drain oil. Maybe only a drip ot two. Just follow BlueFox's advice.
Not sure if he stated but you should mark the shifter before you remove it--a punch or scratch. You must re-install the shifter on the correct splines.
over there id guess...honda dealer,tas, bikebandit,george fix etcDoes the seal need to be purchased through a Honda dealer or is something an auto parts store would have?
sweet,thanks for letting us know that all is wellWell, the project didn't go without a hitch, but wasn't too bad. If I did it again I would know exactly what to do. The new seal is in, the leak has stopped, and I did a fresh oil change w/filter while I was at it. Thanks all for the advice
