Wondering what the part number for shifter seal on a GL500I. I'm not sure what I'm looking at on the microfiche.

An additional thought:

The killer on these small parts purchases is often linked to the cost of shipping. The last time I bought this oil seal I bought a half dozen and tossed the excess into my spares box. It made my shipping charges more tolerable. You may want to buy something else at the same time to amortize your shipping charge. Example: possibly add some oil filters or air filters, etc. ? Another avenue to order low value items is to go to your local Honda dealer and place your order via their parts dept. My local dealer just charges me his price for the item(s) and its shipping cost is buried in his shop's weekly parts shipment (sometimes his distributor offers free shipping to the dealer for large enough stocking orders). My dealer's prices are usually more expensive than most internet sites, but I save the shipping charges, and thus shave a few dollars off my single item purchase. Anyway, you have received good part number info above and can be confident that your seal will fit properly.

Regards,

Thanks everyone on the advice and the part number. That number confirms what I was leaning toward. I have been putting together a list of seals, gaskets, etc. for my engine assembly, I'm totally aware of the shipping thing. Thanks for the heads up.

TAS will have one to you in 2-3 days but its best to call them, they've got so many e-mail adresses it's often better to just call and they appreciate not having to mess with eBay and PayPal. Just tell Matthew that Marshall referred you and you'll likely get free shipping or 20% off. If need be I'll look up the code for the discounts but they'll deal with you on a personal basis you rarely experience.



They are a pretty good source for the ocasional oddball parts you need, you just need to talk with them.

On this item it's cheaper to get one through TAS, in the meantime get a clutch rod seal, tach seal, (that nobody wants to replace) new side cover grommets, (upper and lower) side stand stopper, sight glass for the front caliper, extra air and oil filters, oil filter bolt etc. They know what parts they sell the most of and even if you've got to spring a couple of $$ for postage you'll end up with a better price in the long run than going to the dealer for the same OEM parts.



As I mentioned it's better to call them directly but it's a long distance call so use your cell phone.
