Well think my pulsar has died to a badger, hit a badger a while ago and thought nothing of it as the damage didnt look too bad just a knackered bumper and bashed in intercooler.

Till a couple of days when i noticed a small leak of oil from my sump area (nothing major, just a small drip), well was driving lastnight and went to grab my car this morning and noticed my wheel was wet, opened bonnet and my engine was covered in oil.

I dont know if the badger has damaged something or the oil seal from when my pulley replaced has given in as this wasn't replaced (not had an issue since i hit the badger), ive ordered an crank oil seal to see but for now i think my pulsar is an rip as i doubt it will be that simple.

Was great ownership of the motor and love it to bits, think it will be going into long-term storage from now on and have purchased another car Sad

Hopefully the seal, only use a genuine one as far far better .
Give it good check over & monitor oil pressure to see looks ok, you having more bad luck which shame but hopefully the R easily nursed backed to health :-D

yeah ive ordered a seal from nissan so will give it a try as need to get it moved to a new garage, bought another car so the r isnt needed anymore, can start piling some money back into it to get it back in a nice condition Smile

just wondering do the seals tend to fail when a new pulley is fitted?

is likely as will of worn to old pulley & at 25 years lip not going be as perfect or flexible as was plus stress on them during removal & refitting can kink a hardened seal.
If you can't see obvious leak from impact type damage mr badger or parts of mr badger could of caused then it leans towards the seal & hopefully it is as that nothing major & love & money can be spent elsewhere on improving the R's condition . Hopefully you have good luck :-)

Yeah that would be a bonus, it's just got really unreliable lately so best option is to get it stored away and work on getting everything sorted, can't blame the car it's done about 50k miles and not really given me much grief, hopefully it is the seal so it can be driven to storage
