Well, what with the fact they were £17.15 each and the current exhange rate it works out at 5 seals for the price of one, assuming you could buy one, which you can't.

I have just had my spare crank rebuilt but put me down for $25 if it happens. I'll put them in a box just in case I live long enough to afford to get the crank in the bike rebuilt....

I bought an oem one years ago, that was around £25 back then for me...yamaha I guess needs to pay rossiís salary  :-\. Anyway I'll take 2 or 3 seals with the same caveat as yan ;D

Maybe theyll sell less if you explain itís a low turnover item?

Very nice though I was horrified by the rust and the non-standard side panels in the first picture until I figured out it was the lift  ;D

Okay so it is $5 per seal min order quantity is 100 seals! Made from vitron material that's  $500 usd. Who wants to help out? I don't even own a r/rs i got a spr only inquired to see if I got a response.

Dumb question, apologies, but how many seals are needed for a crank rebuild on the R model ?
