Hi

After searching the 2004 ST3 parts book, I'm really not sure which is the oil seal on the output shaft, behind the front sprocket.

Mine is wearing a little and would like to buy a new one.

I assume that if I remove the front sprocket, I can change the seal.

All help appreciated

Thanks

David

It would make more sense if it were shown on the output shaft drawing, but... It can be changed from outside the engine. Careful pushing the new seal in, you can press it in further than you want. Work to keep it flush with the case casting.

Thank you.
I wondered if it was that one, but they show it on the wrong side of the casing.

I'll get one ordered

AMS Ducati want more to ship the part to Canada than it actually costs. $35 economy or $110 expedited!

The part is about $34

The hunt is on. I usually find it is cheaper to buy from Europe as the shipping cost is much less.

Have you tried a local dealer? Call gpbikes, they don’t have duc parts online but they probably do shipping since they do a lot of online business

I just googled dealers in CA.
This place looks close to PEI ( New Brunswick), but no website. Maybe call them and order the part?

That's brutal. Did you try Ducati Omaha? Any local dealers?

https://www.ducatiomaha.com/pages/ducati-oem-parts

The seal is listed a 35x52x7. Maybe you can find one that fits.
Ducati Omaha want $72.00

I will either pick one up when I'm in the UK later in the year, or have it shipped to Florida during the winter. $9

Shipping to Canada via USPS or UPS is outrageous. I don't know why.
I'm trying the local bearing shop first. They must have standard seals

Thanks for the help

Yes, they are close, but don't seem to keep much in stock. I once waited a month for an oil filter. I've emailed them for a quote.

This is why I buy most parts from Europe - cheaper with cheaper shipping, and about a week shipping. I buy Brembo brake pads from the UK at about 30% of Ducati price. Mahle fuel filters too.

I can get the seal on Amazon for $8.00 to $30 with free shipping.

Thanks for your input. They don't seem to be bad to deal with, just not very quick at getting things they don't stock.
I can get the oil seal at Fastenall in Charlottetown for a few bucks.

I tried EBC brakes when I bought the bike and just didn't like them. They seemed to grab a bit, so I decided to try the Brembo ones as a starting point and never went back. They suit me. I know some people don't like them.
