New Driveshaft seal
Alright Ive been pondering this question for a while now. What driveshaft seal should i get for my 06 rxt. The Skat Trak or the Rad 4 racing one where i havent found one online. What one would be better for my setup i have

all I can speak from my own experience is that the Skat Trac seal has work great for me so far. Ive been running it for over a year now with no issues. the key is service and by that I mean that every time you are going out to ride you should grease the seal.......

I used a Rad 4 for a while. Worked Great. Didnt like the hassle of greasing everytime so I took it out.
Seemed like a quality piece.

You guys running this type of seal really need to be greasing after every ride.
That way if there is any water in the needle bearings after a ride the grease pushes it out.

I strongly recommend using the search feature on this subject and doing as much reading as you can. Good luck.

I could never see a problem with running case-hardened bearings on a non-hardened driveshaft.

That sucks. Looks like it is on the back part maybe not necessarily where the bearing would actually ride? What seal was used? What shaft is that from RXP or RXT?
Here is a pic of my RXT-X shaft after 20 hours with the Rad4.
Here is a before and after the machine work. Which provides a smooth surface for the bearing to ride on.
