My Brute is leaking oil around the seal where the rear drive shaft comes out of the engine. I thought I had heard someone else here say they had this problem. I am going riding in WV next week and will not be able to have it fixed until after i get back. I am wondering how common this has been.

I was the one who posted this in the past. You are the first person other than myself having this leak. All I can say is get it ordered, it took almost 3 weeks to get the new seal in.

I have this problem right now, it just started, how does this happen? Is it a hard job to replace?

its the rear main seal its a supposed very common problem, kawi updated this part so when you order/get one get the 2012 seal, its kinda a pain but take the 3 bolts that hold the rear dif in place and just pull it backwards until you can pull the driveshaft out, pull it out, then take a flathead put it on the outside of one side of the seal hit it til it cocks the seal off to one side. then take a pick tool or a fine flathead and go to the opposite side that its sticking up now and try to get behind it to pull it out. pull it out then wipe the dirt and oil from the housing, pop the new one in til its flush, reconnect everything, boom your done.

oh ya make sure you drain the oil first.

I had to replace mine. It's pretty simple. There's no reason to unbolt the rear diff. All you have to do is compress the drive shaft a little bit and it'll pop right off the output shaft. DO NOT scratch or knick the machined race where the seal goes in the case. If you use those metal car ramps, it makes it pretty easy to get under there.

Mine went out when I got a little too aggressive with the powerwasher. Brute was covered in 2" of cement like mud.

Mine must have came apart easy because it only had about 450 miles on it

But yes, definitely grease the splines as you said.
