I have someone on the "other forum" giving me some $#!+ about these fitting, I have been uber busy and have not pulled and replaced the ring yet.
I know as an engineer this will fit, but until I actually do the replacement, I'm not gonna waste your money and postage.....
now; on an aside, these folks are full of themselves, and have never "popped" an o-ring sealed device into place using a GENTILE tap of a rubber mallet... that being said, I am certain this is the correct combo, so bear with me till I do mine this weekend, and I will either send the ring, and instructions, or re-size and grab something better.....

rest assured no matter what, you will get a more robust cure than what the bike came with.  ;)


I'm thinking I'm spot on, I do this stuff for a living.

if I can't accomplish this, the $1 plus the stamp fee will be in the mail; a.s.i. do it 8) ;) ;)
Hang tight bro, stuff is on the way....

I just noticed this. Pretty awesome. The search for cam sensor leak is very educational.

OOOOOO KAYYYYY..... ;)

RE-prioritized my life today, to get this done for y'all.....

the word is........



woooooo=haaaaaaaaa


it fits perfectly, without a hitch..... you do have to coax the bugger in with your thumb nails, but, it goes in.

soooooo all y'all that sent me envelopes will be getting a pair of rings sent out tomorry, and anyone else that wants some, shoot me the specifics outlined in my initial post here....

I can't vouch for the longevity, or the sealability till I ride a couple thousand miles, but I can say for certain that it fits tighter, and does FIT, compared to the stock OEM p.o.s. (of which I had a new one and compared insertion with.... will say this, there was zero resistance inserting the OEM ring..... ::) ::) ::)



man that job sucks doing it sitting on the floor....... I have another bike up on the lift, and had to do this job "the old fashioned way".....what a biotch. :'(

goin to bed now.
sore knees.
sore back.
but happy that it is a good job, and it seeems to work fine.

We appreciate all your efforts, Rich.  How much did you have to take apart to get to it?

So is this another "early bike" issue?

I just looked at my '10 and it dry and dusty. Knock on wood.
