Same issue here. Seal is leaking.

pz1, Do you know of any common SKF distributors? I've been looking online and I see the seal is cheap compared to bike bandit but with 10 dollar shipping charges, I'm not seeing much benefit. Perhaps your enlightenment can help.

I fought with Bike Bandit over the shipping. Apparently they won't even allow pick-ups in person at all (I'm not too far). I think that's kinda lame they can't ship USPS for $1-2.

Regardless, I paid (ended up buying some other gaskets so I didn't feel completely gouged on shipping) and the seal worked perfectly.

I installed the SKF seal this weekend and so far it's great!

Popped right out with a screwdriver no hassle. i didnt even need to drain the oil. Just leaned the bike over a little with someones help to keep the oil inside.

Also, thanks a lot everyone!
