  • Butterfly Shaft Seals

    Anyone know a good source for butterfly shaft seals for a 99 kat 600? Haven't been able to find any so far.

    I don't know that they are sold separately

      They are just felt washers. Or are you looking for the nomex spacers?

          It's been a while since I pulled a set of 98+ down that far, so remind me... you have a pic of one of the seals? Are they something other than just viton o-rings or felt washers? Both can be sourced with out buying oem parts for much cheaper.

          Mcmaster-carr or grainger for orings often is cheaper buying qty of 25 vs 1 OEM part.
          A felt source and a hold punch - felt seals.

          Help us help you, post some pics... :P

            I tried to upload a pic, but its telling me I "don't have authorization to create or remove attachments" lol. This link shows a picture of one on a Mikuni. They call it a throttle shaft seal.

              Um... Okay, honestly I'm confused, so bear with me here...

              I'm not aware of that seal being used on the 99 Katana. I just don't remember ever running across it before, and it's not listed as far as I can find.

              I've found the seal used on the older metal capped carbs used on the 1100 or 88 600. Part number 13651-51010 if you wanna source it from any OEM parts dealer.

              The 89-97 BST33ss and BST36SS used on the 600s/750s used just felt washers as seals.

              The 98+ BSR (you did list a 99 model yes? ) does not list that seal either.

              It is listed on the 99 gsxR model. Is that what your asking about?

              Anyways, to post a pic...

              Go to Imgur.com, sign up for free. Load the pic there. Copy the link, use it to post the picture here. Do that by clicking the large A at the top right of the posting box to expand the advanced editor options, then click on the image icon in the options and paste the URL.

                Yep, 99. Definitely a kat 600, with plastic tops. Link for the carb pics below. I've rebuilt older Mikuni and Hitachi carbs, so far I've never seen a carb not have these. This is my first time on a katana though.

                  I'd acquire one of the Part number 13651-51010 listed for the other bikes I mentioned above. It's very common for Suzuki to have parts like that, they don't manufacture, cross over to multiple bikes. It's likely the same part, but if you order 1 you can verify that prior to spending a lot of investment on them.

                          Update: I got the seal in from partzilla and it's a direct fit. Looks like I'll be ordering more to finish out the other carbs. Now if I can just get the stripped butterfly screws out........... lol
