oil leaking into belt housing 700 XTX

The one way bearing went out, so I took it to the dealer to have it replaced, I put about 15 min on it and the belt started slipping. Oil in belt housing. Took it back, they replaced the seals, after about 5 min. the belt was slipping again, oil in belt housing. I took it apart myself and noticed a piece that had been cut out of the o-ring that seals the clutch shaft. Replaced o-ring. Rode about and hour and there is oil in the belt housing again, any suggestions? thanks

Looks like the oil is coming from around the outside of the outer seal

Take it back to the dealer and have them "right" it.

I would take it back to your dealer and make them fix it for good this time at no extra charge to you. But I would not tell them you took it apart....

Same here! I would put it back together and take it back. Just tell them the belts slipping.. If you tell them you took it apart they could easliy find a way to say you caused it.

I think its fixed. I took it back apart and made sure everything was clean. When putting it back together I noticed there are 2 slots in the fixed drive spacer. I made sure they were lined up with the oil holes in the clutch shaft. Seemed to have worked.
