Found what I was looking for

Once the flywheel was off, the rear main seal reveals itself... OMG that thing is HUGE! I don't know about the rest of you, but I wa totally surprised at how big that seal is... I mean, we talk bearings and you have an image of a bearing, and then you see the dinky little wheel bearings on these bikes. You talk seals, you think of something an inch around like the tranny seals, but geez, the REAR MAIN SEAL is BIG!

This is what I found, AFTER having squirted cleaners around the flywheel while I was getting over the denial that MY rear main seal doesn't leak.....
