Title: 3XV R/RS main centre crank seal - possible order/buy in
Post by: SeaR1ck on October 25, 2017, 09:06:59 PM
So I'm starting an official post I contacted the seal company about. Getting the seals reproduced they all ready did for another company. The other company will not sale them separate from a crank rebuild services within jspan.

So the problem is the seal company wants a minimum order quantity was 100 units at $5 per seal. That's  $500 for the order still haven't gotten an offical quote.

Thinking might have to do a 5 seal minimum depending on if there's even enough interested to make worth the effort.
Will see if possible to try and get the order limit lowered from the manufacturer.

So far not enough interest for a 100 seal order I asked if possible to only get 25 done. But the price could go up as a result don't wanna be stuck with a bunch of left over seals.

I got the manufacturer to agree to do 50 seals instead of 100 that's better they did not mention anything about price increase per seal either.

Put me down for five, although hoping I never need them (jinxing myself).  Yamaha stopped selling these recently, yes?

What company are you lining up to make them?  (wondering about quality)

SeaR1ck, where are you?  Geographically, that is - not seeing anything under your user name.

T2 racing in Japan is selling a crank overhaul service for R cranks now that the center seal has gone nla with yamaha. They posted pics of the replacement seal which had dimensions and manufacturer markings on it. They stated that they wont sell the seal seperately hence SeaR1ck just contacting the manufacturer directly.

Quality should be good as T2 does replacement seals for the nsr as well?

I'm in Seattle area (Renton) the seal manufacture also does stuff for car engines. So it should be good quality I have bought one of 2T reproduced water pump shafts with gears over the summer and it was good quality no reason why they would make a crap seal for a crank rebuild. The seal manufacture said it is made from vitron material.

Got it.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viton (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viton)

If the seal mfg is likewise Japanese, sounds like clear sailing.

I have an OEM seal for comparison if we need it (93101-40162).

Good point - there may be others who don't frequent the 3XV sub-forum who may be interested.  3MA use the same part #?

Okay I got confirmation of what the seal looks like i need one small request change and have the spring added around the center hole. Other wise it looks good to go a pic on what they sent me everything looks good just that simple fix of a spring.

Nice! The spring is definitely needed as you said.

Hi Searick

I just spoke to ybk on the phone he says the cost per seal is aprox. 5 dollars. If that is the case I am in for 100 dollars or 20 seals. If the costs goes up because of amounts ordered keep me at 100 dollars. Lots of guys in SA needing them.

Excellent News cant wait for feedback.

Thank You

Looks like a lot of board member here need the crank seal.  If I get 5, I should be able to sell at least 4 on this forum :D

I'm still waiting to hear back from the agent about getting the spring added and then production will start. Maybe I should of asked for more per seal  >:D

Hi Guys

Just one question from my side maybe i mist it in earlier posts. The seal is steel reinforced it is not just a rubber seal? If it is steel reinforced i am in just let me know how we pay and final price per seal.

Thanks for your hard work.

This is what my OEM seal looks like:

(http://www.nwfoureyebbq.org/images/93101-40162.jpg)

Part # 93101-40162.  Clearly has a spring and a metallic foundation.  Numbers printed on the one side are "FAJ7 44 72 5.3 TS B3".  Near as I could make out, anyway  :)

I also have an original spare (93101-40163), same as ybk's, but different to 406's...  Mine, like ybk's definitely has a moulded-in steel reinforcing disc/ring.  Internal diameter of seal 40mm / outer diameter 75mm.  If the new ones are manufactured the same as the one I have, I am interested in joining the list of purchasers.

Hi

Looks good to me let the manufacturing commence. And crank rebuilds are on the cards. I have two I will rebuild as soon as the seals land.

Thought we were sitting ducks with these r cranks.

Thanks

Edd

PS If anybody sells them for a profit except you it is not in the interest of pure two stroke spirit. Then we end up like the honda guys on the nsr forum; in it for the money and not the love of it. This forum has always shared info freely in good spirit and we always helped each other. "Band of Brothers". Thats my 50 cents worth ;)

I'm happy to get one posted to me and at some point if you sell enough (at what ever price you like) to get the original "seed money" back then refund me the investment less the cost of one. If you make even more cash then pocket it for your troubles. I'm just happy to help like it's a "Kickstarter".

Thanks guys, much appreciated! Great initiative to keep our unique bikes on the road! I think the OEMs should really consider their loyal and enthusiastic customers more carefully before deciding to "NLA" critical items... If I can believe the press, it seems that Suzuki is making more of a business out of supporting their followers and the growing classic bike market...

Post by: SeaR1ck on December 29, 2017, 04:50:44 AM
Uk guys it's just a flat rate on shipping it would work out to be cheaper if I sent them to just one address then you can ship within country to each other for less if you guys want to do that.

It's the same rate if just one seal or multiple up to 4lbs.

Still waiting on 4 others to contact me same thing for the ZA guys on shipping. But if goes over 4 lbs the rate goes up from $35 usd to $67 up to 10 lbs.

Your choice how you want to proceed.

Ship mine to 4l04ever, he will pay you. Before 4l04ever ships to me I will pay him for half (or whatever proportion) of the USA shipping and the UK postage and packing.

Picked mine up in person today.  To my (admittedly inexpert) eyes, they look to be of very good quality.  Thanks again, Rick!  (-P)

You guys will have to wait until Saturday so I can get to the post office to ship them. They are only open the hours I'm at work during the week. I tried to do the customs form online and it keeps asking me for some damn aes #. It won't let me past it don't know what it is. Best I can tell is it's some kind of exporters license number.

What makes it lame is in person on the paper form it's not required but the friggin website it is.

So I'm having to wait until Saturday so I can go in person to ship them out.

That leaves two members left who haven't paid for shipping yet.

Once I can get to the post office on Saturday I will send you the tracking numbers.

I know I'm late to the party.  Don't seem to get on this forum enough... :-[

Would there by chance be a seal or two still available?  I've a crank that could use a rebuild.

Let me know if anyone has a spare they are not using.  If they've all not been shipped over the pond, I'm in the US too.

Too late man they are all spoken for to bad it would have been easy for me to ship them to you since I'm in the states too.

Damn!

Surely someone that bought 5, 10 or more...would be willing to part with 1 or 2??   :-\

Have they all been shipped out already?

I have two spare Jcsnook. I ordered five, Clive is down to get two and I only want the one. If they've not posted yet then get SeaR1ck to send you two of mine and we can sort the cash out later. If not then I can send you them back over the pond when I get them.

Sweet, they said it would take on average 6 to 8 business days but i can't promise that plus it could depend on your local post and how fast they are and the east coast is under that deep freeze I'm sure slowed things up.

Mine have made it as far as San Francisco today 10th, according to the tracker. That was 02.57 there, 10.57 here in Plymouth UK.

I'm patient, they'll probably get to the UK sometime overnight/tomorrow. Then ParcelForce will probably take another week to get here.

So mine have spent 4 days 225 East-Northeasterly miles away at Heathrow Airport before being shipped 100 miles Northwest to Coventry. Now 230 North-Northeasterly miles away.

Instead of travelling West for 100 miles along the M4 and Southwest for 125 miles on the M5/A38, mine will have travelled 330 miles along the M1, M6, M5 and A38 by the time they get here.

Still time for Parcelforce to lose them in Exeter though. I did say it would be about a week from arriving in UK

That is some funky routing - but I ordered some seals for my one bike and the vendor instead of using ups to deliver to me directly. They delivered it yesterday to my local post office to then deliver it to me so it will take longer. I hate when they do this "hand off" crap.

I've had packages sent by fed ex from Japan hit California then instead of coming to me in Seattle. It goes to Missouri first then to Seattle.

I have a question regarding storing these seals.

I won't be needing my seal (the one I have left) for some time. What is the best way to keep it? Do I grease it and store in an airtight poly-bag? Or use 2T oil and a poly-bag? Or no "lube"? Should I wrap it in greaseproof paper before the poly-bag?

I did find this (https://www.marcorubber.com/o-ring-shelf-life.htm) which would suggest "naked, in a cardboard box, in a sealed bag, in the garage" (starting to sound like a Grindr profile...)

Any advice (about seal storage) gratefully recieved.

I'm vacuum packing mine and putting away in a tin in the house. I think that's best but not sure. How does yamaha's warehouse in Japan handle this... :P ?:-|

Best way to store seals is coat them with O ring grease (red rubber  grease) and keep them in a plastic zip lock bag

 This one time  I bought off ebay a set of the lower side fairing for my friends 1kt from Zimbabwe. It took 3 months for them to show up! I thought they was never going to show but they finally did.
