2003 gp1300r blown crankshaft seals
Having an issue with 2003 13r.
Originally came in with engine mount failure. While I had engine out I did a leak test and it failed miserably.
So new crank seals fitted. Engine was air tight N repeat leak test.
All back together and started and ran fine. Owner then notices a loss of power and when I checked it the rear crank seal had been blown out. I removed the engine and on checking g the front seal was also blown out. So obviously backfiring in the bottom end.
I replaced the seals. Checked the phasing of the crank. Fitted new plug's. Checked the resistance of the pick up coils. Everything checks out good. I then suspected maybe a fault in the efi controller so I removed it.
Put everything back together and took it to water this time myself.
Ski runs good and plugs look perfect. Only thing I noticed was if I ease of the throttle to say 50% and then floor it there is is a slight stumble before it takes off.
I took a quick loo at the crank seals again after returning home. Maybe I am paranoid but they look as if the have moved out slightly again towards the rear coupler.
Have I missed something here in my DIAGNOSIS. I still think what fault caused the seals to blow is there and the seals a re being pushed out gradually.
What are the other psi be causes of backfire in the bottom end other than
fuel mixture issue.

Do the reed cages have any signs of backfire? Compression is good, right? Try using OEM seals and sealant on them.
