I have two sets of spare wheels for my yz450 so I can quickly change them for the best tyre choice at a race.
Does anyone make a push in plastic plug that can go in the seals to keep dirt and shit out when the spares are lying around?
The Yamahas have unsealed bearings...all it takes is a few grains of grit to get in there and chop out those bearings

Look on McMaster Carr or grainger for plastic or rubber plugs. Measure the hole and find a plug. Usually sell them in packs.
I prefer McMaster Carr because they give dimensioned part drawings online.

Go on Amazon and type in "rubber winterizing expansion plug". Find a size that will work.
