1987 Chain Case Lip Seals. Anyone Know?
Ok, so I posted a thread about what turned out to be my screw up. I ordered the drive kit and not the chain case kit. SO.... I figured I already had the lower chain case bearing which is sealed so there was no lip seal, I'll just go get another 6205 bearing. I figured the old one wasn't sealed and I'm going put lip seals in anyway so I got an open one for the top. Now I can't get the correct lip seals anywhere. The bearing supplier, who actually gave me the bearing for free since my company does a lot of business with them had no immediate supplier. As much as I hate to over pay for stuff I figured what's the big deal? I'll pay $8 for $2 worth of lip seals so I went to my local Yamaha dealer. He spent about 15 min on his computer, then showed me a picture that showed both lip seals. Of course their part numbers are different than what's on mine. Mine just say 27-44 which I take to mean 27mm ID and 44mm OD.
Well they came in and my wife stopped to pick them up. For Pete's sake!! These things are like 8mm x 16mm. I had the actual seal there for them when these were ordered!!
SO...... Does anyone know where I can get the correct lip seals or bearing seals if you will for my chain case on a 1987 yamaha XLV 540?
