It's a standard R23 / TC type seal. I think the size is 30/40/7 (will check later to confirm). Plenty on ebay from reputable sellers far cheaper than the OEM part.

The factory will always concoct some BS story about how to do simple tasks. Drilling and pulling seals is VERY common. My advice is to coat the drill bit in plenty of grease...this will ctach any shavings. Carefully screw in a couple of self tapers and either lever or pull out the old seal with vice grips. Ensure theres no metal shavings etc, clean everything, lit smear of rubber grease on housing and press the new one in. ALL Triumph seals are standard sizes and are readily available at bearin/seal suppliers for much much cheaper than Triumph supplies them for.

28/40/7 Viton. Its actually not a standard seal as its a directional (anti clockwise) radial shaft seal, however, any quality replacement seal will suffice.

One question before I order. I see there are two types listed double lip or single lip seals. Any idea which one it is?

The procedure to swap the seal is in the Triumph workshop manual. They say it has to be done  by stripping the whole unit down. I will post the page tomorrow if anyone is interested
Yep, I'm interested.

Correct, and I'm now in a position to be interested in what he has to offer, as per his post.
