For your engine(because you don't have shims), Your rotor buts right up against the sprocket spacer(not the washer spacers, but the spacer that goes in before the seal).

Your pulley insert buts up against the rotor.

The nut goes on.

None of that ever touches the seal.

Exactly right MrScary...if it did, the seal would be torn to shit as soon as you fired the motor up.

Man that sucks!! Haven't had the chance to ride mine yet. I used an o-ring behind the spacer, new seal(obviously),and vented the lower case. In your case, I would think you'd be able to see if the shaft was bent by looking at the front pulley.

yeah...but a slight bend maybe not...but just enough to fuck the seal up...
i took it our today and it didnt leak at first...started after a while.

what size was the o-ring you used?

tomorrow the seal goes in the way they come from the factory....spring out...with blue form a gasket....rather then the copper i have been using.....anyone thing i could wedge 2 seals in there? just a thought...how much room is in there?

there is NO way i am fucking putting these seals in wrong every god damn time.

I,believe it or not, went to Lowe's with the spacer in hand to the plumbing section and bought some cheap assortment. I used a thin one that had to stretch to get over the shaft. I also put "Right Stuff" all over the o-ring. But like I said I haven't tested it yet, so.....

Hey, did you beat on it or just cruise around? Just wondering about pressure issues.

I asked cause I've been thinking. One of the times I changed the seal, I took it out for an easy ride and it didn't leak until the next when I had done a few holeshots. So maybe it is a pressure issue as some have mentioned.....maybe.
