    Intercooler O-Ring

    Anybody out there know where I can buy the red rectangular o-ring that seals the intercooler on the '08 SHO? Mine grew about a half-inch while on the bench.

    Welcome to the forum!

    I just checked the online store and it doesn't appear as though Yamaha offers that seal individually. They only show the intercooler as a complete assembly

    Maybe cut the seal with a razor blade and lay it in place and seal the cut area with some good quality silicone sealant.

    I had that same problem when I was putting in the stage 1 IC core.
    I tried putting it in the freezer for 10 minutes. That helped, but not enough.

    I ended up cutting it and using sealant at the cut and corners to hold it in place. I had Zero issues with that.

    LOL, I cursed at that thing for 20 minutes the first time I had the IC apart. Don't damage it because the intercooler parts can't be bought individually...you have to buy the whole thing unless you can find a used one. I put somw Red'N Tacky grease in the groove to hold it in place while you work it in. It'll fit with a little patience.
