Cool Teryx oil leaking question

New to the teryx scene, I have a 09 sport with 18 hrs. on it. I have seen multiple forums talking about oil leaking from the output shafts of the teryx, is this because of faulty seals or could it be too much crankcase pressure building up, so far I havent had this prob. Any input on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

You have to take the front shaft off when dynoing or you burn the seal and get a leak.

Dougs,

The seal that leaks is the front diff seal when you dyno it, not the engine seal.

The engine seals just seem to leak no matter what.

I just wait until it is leaking so bad that I cant stand it before I replace mine. They always leak but the good thing is it doesnt hurt anything.

how did you replace the seal? Mine is now leaking enough to make the engine smoke. Just need to know how to remove the shafts.

Which seal are you talking about that is leaking?

Trying to figure out what you mean by leaking bad enough to make the engine smoke, please explain
