do not need to remove shaft. if you want to remove shaft, you need to pull clutch cover, remove clutch basket, etc, because selector end of shaft is behind it.
to replace shift shaft seal, just pull the shifter lever off and remove replace seal. i do not believe the later models had the snap ring/washer/rubber boot external to the seal. the early ones did.
