Vacuum Release Plate Seal Question

Recommended Posts

Well, my '98 WR Vacuum Release Plate finally started developing the infamous fatigue cracks I read/heard about since 99. I’ve been keeping a close eye on it ever since and was beginning to think mine may have been an exception. No such luck, but I did catch it well before it would have disintegrated and fragged my motor. I picked up a new plate and seal from Sudco and I’ve forgotten the orientation on the seal. Does anyone know if the small lip faces the plate or is it the other way around? Thanks in advance for the help.

I was looking at a YZ450F vacuum release plate today. The lip faced the slide such that it presses against it around the narrow border.

Thanks JD. After fiddling with it both ways, that orientation seem to make it seat a bit better in the slide.
