    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 personally run and like the Rad4 seal. Here is a writeup I did a while back. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...highlight=rad4

    Gee,
    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.
