This whole time I thought they leaked to coat the rear wheel with oil and give the illusion of power when the rear wheel lost traction!
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

Yeah...my shovel did that once.  Quite a surprise when I rounded a 90 degree turn.  Wheee!

The seals for the water pump rebuild arrived and of course when I pulled the chain cover, I saw that I should have ordered a clutch pushrod seal too.  I ordered a shift shaft seal too just because.  They'll be here in a few days. 

I've been playing with my ZRX again while this one is down.

Kinda grubby back there.  Otherwise the pump is still in nice shape.

How does the clutch rod look? If it's got some corrosion on it, it'll tear up the new seal. I don't think that yamaha charges an arm and leg for those.

As far as I can tell, it looks good.  Thanks for the reminder though.  I think it's just a case of 24 year old seals.

I had no idea seals can even live that long.  Turns out, they can live to 30.

"Life Span of a Seal. If a seal survives the dangers of being a pup, seals are generally long-lived animals. Both the Grey and Common seal have been known to live more than 30 years. One female Grey seal around the Shetland Isles in Scotland was known to be 46 years old."

I've ended up ordering a few more things including a new bearing.  Getting the old mechanical seal out is also turning out more interesting than expected. 

Some of you following along may also have noticed that some crazy cajun nominated my YZF for BOTM!    An unexpected honor.   Thank you Redbird.
