    Default Viper pinion seal

    Has anyone ever changed out the pinion seal on a Viper kit? I've got a "16 Goldwing with a Viper kit that was put on when the GW was new. About 23,000 miles on it. I jacked the trike up the other day to do the oil change on the differential and noticed that the pinion seal was leaking a little. Figured I better fix it sooner rather than later and just was wondering if anyone has had any experience with the job? Is it any different than changing out a pinion seal on a regular 4 wheeler or is there things you need to look out for when you're doing it?

    Thanks in advance!

    If it's a 2016, it may still be under the California Sidecar warranty. They have a 5 year warranty on the conversion so you might want to reach out to them and see if they will replace it. Unless you want to tackle this on your own which I could also understand...
