Speedometer Cable "O" Ring leak

Can't recall if this fix has been posted yet.
If you get an oil leak here,:
toss the POS OEM oil seal and get you a small o-ring. Buna-N, Neoprene, or Viton is best. Unscrew the cable end from the engine case. Note that the diameter of the shaft section the o-ring goes on is about 0.275". Put the o-ring here:
Smear a small bit of silicone grease on the o-ring and reinstall the speedo cable end to the engine case. Don't overtighten.
End of problem......for a while. The o-ring will not stand up to multiple R&Rs of the speedo cable. But, if you leave the cable alone, it will last for quite some time.

LouSiana searched through lots of other 'zuki cable sets and discovered the correct stock OEM Suzuki ring lip seal hiding under part number 34943-11030 for $2.74 plus shipping. This ring lip seal has eluded us for years but it is now finally found and identified.

Watch out for when you go to order from Ron Eyers or Bike Bandit as the standard Japanese short hand description for "Tachometer Cable Oil Seal" is TACH CABLE OIL which is certainly misleading to the reader and goes a long way to explain why nobody could ever find this part number before now. Actually, it was found (and it was ignored) literally hundreds of times over all the years of parts list searching .....
The part actually looks like this:

Stock silver 2002 ls650 with small saddle bags. Looks like Granny's old worn out bike, nothing special to it at all.
(all mods except BIG piston and carb change have been done, but do not show)
