Everyone I talked with said it was a breeze. Well, after I got all of the fairing, etc. removed I can't even see where the shaft enters the transmo. The headers and heat shield are in the front.
If you have replaced the seal, do you have to removed the exhaust and heat shield to get to the seal?

This is no "breeze" job at all. Maybe in earlier models it was but on my '98 Aspy I had to remove the headers, heat shield and portion of the frame. Broke off one bolt on headers, got it out and replaced with another bolt. This is definitely a tough job so don't even begin unless you have the biggest portion of a day left to do it in.
Just a word to the wise to pass along.

Wish I had seen Joes post when I needed mine done. I had the new seal in hand and attempted this repair but couldn't get the last linkage off the shaft. Therefore, I took TW's montra above, I put everything back together and let the dealer do it :eek:
