    Std Futura Clutch Seals Sourced

    For those looking for new Clutch Seals for the Std Brembo Master Cylinder - look no further!!

    A few weeks back, mine failed and I asked a UK manufacturer if the could help and they thankfully said yes.
    You do not need to purchase batches, they are happy on an individual basis.
    As I had it all apart, I just replaced the lot and I am happy to report all is working as it should.

    The seals are as followed:

    Master Cylinder Seal - Lever End: SU12-6.9-4DE-EP-S-DK101 @ £2.50 + taxes + P&P

    Nice!

    Did they source those seals by dimensions?

    A quick search of their part numbers only brings up this post

    The part numbers are their own numbers so probably won't relate to anything else.
    They didn't source the items as such, I sent up all four seals for them to either cross reference or manufacture especially as I was unable to size them up properly or accurately.
    I'm happy either way as I was quoted £24 just for the slave seal and now I can replace all four for £10 or roughly $14.

    That's sure cheaper than a new master from some other bike that might, or might not work.

    Even with added shipping costs across the pond for a padded envelope, might be worth having those bits at hand as spares.

    Awesome find! I was just looking at getting the outer boot from AF1, and was pondering what to do about refitting piston seals. Thanks for your efforts!

    Looks like I'll be looking for a package via Royal Mail in the near future.

    Does the "EP" in the part number mean its EPDM?

    If you supply them with a sample or samples - then YES!

    I would 'assume' so as they were specified for use with brake fluid.

    All,
    I've contacted the company in England (FPE Seals) that will manufacture these seals for our slave and master Cylinders. They have a distributor here in the US who have turned out to be completely unhelpful and uninterested. After speaking to the parent company they will ship full sets to us at around $50 per set. At least half of that is just import fees.
    as follows:

    From FPE Seals Inc.

    1qty Clutch Slave Cylinder Rear Seal: SS8-16-7-SC
    1 qty Clutch Slave Cylinder Seal: SU112078-018DE-EP-S-DK101
    2qty Master Cylinder Seal - Spring End: SU12-5.2-3.8-EP-S-DK106
    2qty Master Cylinder Seal - Lever End: SU12-6.9-4DE-EP-S-DK101

    I'm testing the waters for a group buy, anybody interested?
    Let me know this week as I'm planning to order.

    Jerry.

    Been a while since I had my hands on the OE clutch slave, but iirc, there's but one seal involved and that's likely still available as an OE part.

    I dare to say that many of us would be interested in the master's seals.

    The OEM slave cylinder seal used to be quite expensive but the price has recently dropped to $6.53

    Supposedly this will be less than $50 for each of us? If so, I'll buy a set.

    What are there 2qty for each MC seal?
