Question about 1987 Yamaha FZR 1000
Did you buy a genuine Yamaha seal? Patten parts are often not that good. If you did, and followed the advice of keeping everything clean, then it is possibly due to wear between the shaft and seal. Although not familier with FZR1000's, Yamaha engines often allow this shaft to be replaced without pulling the engine apart. It is quite a common problem on their RD LC bikes. This will involve removing the right hand cover (clutch cover) to gain access to the other end of the shaft. You may also need to remove the clutch basket as well.
You need to invest in a workshop manual if you want to tackle this yourself, but it is not a difficult job.
Of course, if the leak is very minor, you may wish to just live with it!
