Bit Obvious really but the SV1000 Seal is a different design and double sealed.

Same OD as the TLS / TLR one and same ID

Has a top hat shape to it, so the hole in the retaining plate may need enlarging slightly.

Does look a bit beefier, eh? I've been putting together a list of stuff to order and I've just changed one of the items. Thanks, Sam.:thumbup

I saw it on Ebay and the microfiche said the size was 6x34x10.5

The TLS/TLR Microfiche says 6x34x5.5

I thought no way is the pushrod hole 10.5mm so I bought it to look further.

I've no leaking engine to see if it fits, but with the exception of the raised top hat on the outside the size is the same but much better designed :)

Maybe one for the frequent mods ?

Sam, the 5.5 in the TL seal is the ID and the pushrod itself verniers at 6mm. If the ID of the SV seal is 5.5, it would be sweet. Its strange that they dont actually specify the SV ID in the seal numbers :O

Both seals have the same 5.5mm hole for the 6mm pushrod, the 10.5 is the total width of the seal and the top hat is 21.5mm diamter where it will poke through the steel retainer plate.

I think it will work and may give it a try since mine needs to be replaced. Are you sure about the seal measurements though? Seems to me that they mean 6 is the hole diameter, 34 is the overall and 10.5 is the thickness:O

The 6mm refers to the diameter of the shaft (or rod in this case) that the seal will seal, in reality the hole is probably 5.5mm so you get 0.5mm difference to create the seal.

I only checked the fiche for the 2003 model, I guess they are all the same unless they modified the crankcases aswell :dowhat

Completed this mod on Sunday, field testing to begin this week. I used the seal of the 2003 SV1000 as documented by SAM. the retaining plate required slight modification, filed out the hole to relieve the top hat section of the new seal. Fit was the same PITA as the old one, need to be very carefull inserting the seal but it looks like a winner. I've taken a few pics of the assembly and retainer plate rework, will post later in the week. Thanks for the heads up SAM, that leak was peally pissing me off.

I replaced mine too but discovered that I also have a leak at the countershaft so that seal will get replaced this winter.

seen it posted in here that it's recommended to replace both seals at the same time which they tend to go around the same timeframe...:)
