Jaffie,

It is an easy fix. The part sells for cheap through Yamaha but if you can get the seal code I'm sure you could order it for half that through a bearing supply.

1. Remove 32mm sprocket nut, sprocket and washer.

2. Remove small metal cover over output shaft.

3. Using a fish hook, needle nose plies etc. dig that sucker out of the case.

4. Remove all grit from seal space within the case.

5. Using a similarly sized socket matched to the OD of the seal, carefully drive the new seal in place.

Hope that helps it is a simple job.

Regards,

Grum.

If you get the code NAPA auto parts should have it for about half the cost.

I got my seal for my street bike from NAPA, so they probably have the one you need.
