I don't think the headers have to be removed. The seal size I'm fairly sure has been posted before.

Pull the old one using a grabber screw about 1.5 to 2 threads and pull with pliers. I did mine that way, the easiest oil leak on the bike to fix. takes longer to r and r the shifter, and drink a beer. Honda still makes em just so ya know but will take a week to get to you as they never stock anything.

But no one can tell me where to buy the shift shaft seal for my 84 GL1200. Talk about frustration and wasted time!! Help!
What about your Honda dealer?
Or is $2.50 0ver your budget?:ROFL:

I would take an ice pick and put a bend in the tip, right angle or a bit more.
Make that bend about 3/16 inchfrom the end.

Use that tool to hook the old seal and just pull it right out.
Take that to your local parts store and match it.

Or, call Western Honda at 480-994-8400 and ask for parts department

they will be happy to look it up.
I cannot find that seal on the parts list online, at this page
The full list of parts diagrams is here:
