Thanks for the info on the oil-light bushing kit , that sounds like the ticket !!! kinda pricey though. I was not clear witch bearings I was interested in , but you are spot on that's the part no. I need.I already have the new swing arm bearng kit from ALL BALLS RACEING ( got them off ebay for $25 but they are not a sealed bearing). Voxmagna what I have in the bike looks like it is the teflon seal ,thats what I wanted your input on . I am close to a seal supply and he said he would probly have the seals I need for the clutch job when I was in getting some other o-rings as well as him haveing the viton o-ring $1 . But since it has the teflon rear main already in it I thought it would be OK just to leave it in , I will use the same houseing with a new clutch. This bike is a 2000 modle so the dealer probly had put the new teflon rear main seal in it , is what I think , but did they put the teflon seal in 2000? It has the felt on the clutch push rod , witch looks good. the clutch slave looks great ,very clean brake fluid in it.I'm going to lube the small bearing in it. But if the dealer did do a clutch/seal repair on it it was done well ( I never talked with previous owner) The bike had a K&N air filter and , some-one opened the muffler on top of the coverter , and welded it back shut , I think they took the guts out of it there but some-thing is rattleing in there and I going to have to open it again. The bike had 41000 on it when I bought it and has 52000 now . I've never seen that type seal in any-thing and I've seen some machinery ,the teflon seals are suppose to last very long aren't they ?
