it is probably the 07 top seal

Do you know where I can find the parts fiche for the 07 model? FWIW the OLD part number is 4EW-23416-00-00. It's the same for the 125/250/250f/450. Looks like this part hasn't changed since 1994.

Are you really packing the bearings full of grease or just putting on from the outside? Packing these bearings by hand can take 15-20 minutes if done properly. I have owned several yamis and have never had a problem as long as I packed the bearings with waterproof grease.
