    What's The Best 550 Crank Seals ?

    Hey guys, I'm gonna replace the crank seals on my Reed motor 550 and I was wondering which ones are the good ones and where can I buy them ? I know OEM is probably the best but the only place I found that had them wants $42 per seal. Are there any better opitions at a better price ? Any input would be much appreciated. Thanks

    I get my oem crank seals from partzilla.com I use the 3 double lip seals. The single lip rear seal is the more expensive one so I just get 3 of the same seals

    search the OEM part number on eBay. I can usually get
    all three OEM seals (for a 650 anyway) for about $35 shipped.
    Just make sure they are OEM.
    I have heard good and bad about aftermarket; ex: Winderosa sucks, ProX is good. Funny
    thing is, both of there gasket kits use the same brand of crank seal (T N T)...and yes they are
    dynamite.
    A excellent installation job will go a long way with any brand.
    2001 Superjet; R&D, Blowsion, UMI, Riva, Wetwolf, Ocean Pro.

    1987 650sx: Mariner, UMI, Neo Designes, R&D, Jetsports, Renthal, Hydro-Turf, Skat-Trak, Reworked stock pipe, 40mm carb, Wetwolf F/S cone.

    1986 JS300; lots of mods, fast for a 300...I think

    1987 X2: Rips pretty good and has some 80's flare.

    Thanks ACP, I ended up ordering a set from Robert Sand. I'm not sure if they're OEM but everyone said their good double lipped seals.
