Water pump mechanical seal kits not fitting

I've got (what I believe) is a 1990 klr650 case, and it needed a new impeller seal with the ceramic looking disk.

When I purchased the 49063-1056 part number, the dimensions are all off..
Here is what came off the bike vs what I got.

That new ceramic disc may actually be for 49063-1055 mechanical seal for other models.

I measure the -1055 ceramic at 13.919mm ID & the metal body at 28.778mm OD. I believe that you may have Mis-Packaged Parts.

I measure the KLR 49063-1056 metal body at 24.231mm OD and the ceramic disc at 11.938mm ID, nearly the same as your old one.

Humm, that ceramic seal is even larger than the -1055 ceramic seal.

KLR Jo, Maybe investigate the second set of links in this souperdoo article. Now just an independent shop.

I recon Tom & I had the same thought at the same time. But he types with all 10 digits.

Humm, Looks like the 2nd, 3rd & 4th links in the Souperdoo article are no longer valid. Oh well, time marches on.

That's OK, it's been given to you at least two other times.
