Please note that in some packages, the appropriate race & bearing combinations are mispackaged. Read the bearing and race numbers from the parts to determine the appropriate combinations.

When I removed the stock ball bearings, I boogered up the seal. Mike's XS did not have a replacement. I found one at bikebandit.com. Others have had luck at their Yamaha dealers. Also note that at bikebandit, I had trouble finding the part for my year (1977). I found the part by searching for a 1980. As both have 35mm forks I am confident in the validity of this approach.
