Easy, basic sockets 10mm IIRC.
I got pix somewhere. The big magnet needs some coaxing off.

Mine was smoking a lot, new seal did the trick

No special tools. You remove the cover, lay it on the ground, and use something to pry out the old seal. Mine was pretty tight in the case. I used a screwdriver with a little block of wood under it to keep from denting the aluminum cover. Bang the new one in place, and you are good to go.

C-Zulu, how's she running now? Are you still scaring the Minnesota skeeters away with your KTM 950 2 stroke?

As I've just discovered, you can thread a coarse 9/16 bolt in through the center of the old seal, and it jacks it right out. That's after I got scared using a screwdriver and went looking for something less destructive.

An open ended wrench can be used to pry out an oil seal.

NExt time i'll give it a try.

I had luck with a very pointy center punch and hitting the seal a few times around (tapping towards the center) then it came right out

Man at 50,000 miles my seal was brittle and came out in little square bits .
No wonder it was smoking , totally fixed the problem .
Screwdriver out deep well socket in and fixed .

Thank heavens for ADVrider trouble shooting ! ! !

A picture tells a thousand words! Well, quite a few anyway. Now I know where that seal lives. Going to do it next week as preventative at 15000km.

Getting quite a list of PM items now...Stat, cap, WP, oil press sw, gear posn sensor O ring. About an extra couple of hours work every valve check. Not a big deal.
