Bikerfred I think all you have to do is remove gear change lever ease old seal out and replace push in new seal replace gear lever. Iam sure one of the experts will put you right if iam wrong.

I just changed the shifter seal but the engine is out of the frame. It was very easy to get a small hook into it and pull it out, I think that you should be able to do this with the engine installed. the seal is a metric seal # 14x28x7 this is the size the Honda # is H 91206-286-013

I changed on on my 1200, took off the shift lever, made me a hook out of a piece of small welding rod and pulled the old seal out. You just press the new seal in. Cover the splines on the shaft with a bit of tape so the lips on the new seal don't get cut, greas the shaft with a light wipe of moly grease to protect the seal. A trace of moly in your oil isn't going to be enough to bother the clutch, but it will go a long way to make the seal last.

Does the oil need to be drained before pulling the seal out?

Might be a good idea, I did mine during an oil change while the oil was out.

No, you can do it with the oil in. In fact I didn't lose any oil at all when I did mine.

I've done this job myself. Its really easy, I never even thought of draining the oil first, but I didn't lose any when I pryed the old seal out.

Thats handy to know. The gear seal on my gl1800 is starting to leak a drop or two per day. I should have the seal tomorrow and I will tackle this job at the weekend.
