Red SKF seals failures


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, the new OEM SKF are rumored as leaking at low hours, I heard a couple of reasons , the one been manufacturing causes, which you can't do anything

Has any had similar expirience?

What did you do to fix the problem?

red come as oem on ktm and husky as off 15, same quality seal as the green but have early failures on some, i was told red are biodegradable so they may be sensitive to solvent or mineral oil , did you notice leaks after the first oil change with mineral suspension oil??

I have changed oil brands, and haven't had any issues with premature seal leakage now, it was causing me issues before

i changed oil in a set let them seat in the shop 2-3 days and when customer tried them at the track they started leaking!!

 

No signs of leakege before, were going for the green ones now!!

 

i use full synhetic in other oil changes now on!!
