    This source needs a link in the wiki.

    Agreed. In fact, a wiki writeup detailing the procedure would also be appropriate.

    In the meantime, I've made this thread sticky so it will not slip away.

    Timothy, I see a later reponse but I still don't know what seal you are speaking of if not the main seal MC7. It is still available from Honda. If those become unavailable I will certainly get involved with them. Let me know what's hp.

    I have a booklet on seal replacement, have had for many years, for the CBX. Same seal, same oil quantity, no difference. :-) The second and third links are a background paper and a teaser article, respectively.

    Mike and I had discussed that seal in our email exchange and we both thought it was still available. In fact, I had purchased a couple just a few years ago. Apparently it has also been discontinued.

    That tends to happen over the years.
    I've bought many seals and parts that I feared might start to dry up, unfortunately, I wasn't smart enough to grab a couple of the shock seals, mostly because they are such a super pain in the ass to rebuild correctly (full disassemble), and I don't have a shop press to begin with.

    Well then. I will check with my supplier and get the ball rolling on that seal.
