I found my steering feeling a little strange so I took everything apart and found the lower bearing is a bit rusty, I need to order two new bearings and two seals, however I can't find a part listed for the lower seal on yamaha's site, can somene who has done this before please enlighten me if the seal comes with the bottom bearing before I order it, thanks.

typically the seal will come with the bearing, but I haven't replaced head bearing on this bike so I'm not completely sure. I'd go ahead and order the bearings and if the seal doesn't show up with them, then worry about it.

Thanks, I guess that's why it's not listed, strange though.
