I've got this seal retainer from Procycle and couldn't be happier with it. Installation was simple and the fit was perfect. Money well spent for the peace of mind.

I think it's a good peace of mind, low cost piece of insurance, that doesn't hurt to buy and install.

One note, for all the "non-believers" if the countershaft seal problem, is not a problem, why does Suzuki now have an Official Suzuki Countershaft Seal Retainer?

If you go to the ProCycle web site, they show a new version of the seal retainer from Suzuki.

With Suzuki's version of the seal retainer that Procycle sells can the plastic cover be reinstalled? Also, how important is installing a new seal when installing the retainer?

Cover and retainer are independant and seal only required if leaking. 5 min fit with no special tool. FWIW, PC, and myself, no longer do their own retainers since Suzuki took it on themselves.

So I have the new seal and retainer and have destroyed the probably good seal attempting to get it out... What is the trick to getting it unseated and out of the race? Is it just keep using a screwdriver or it there another trick?

If the seal wasn't leaking, you don't have to take it out to install the retainer. But, if you have already damaged the seal, use a pick o or screwdriver to finish removing it. Then install a new seal and then the retainer.

I was working with a pick and a flat blade. It just seemed way harder to pop out that I thought it should be. I will continue. Thanks

I found this after much data-mining type work on youtube.

The screw method seems good for me. :s_cool
