You just need a seal driver. A piece of pipe the right size, or a correct size socket.

If you have the service manual for you scoot, you should read through the procedure as Harley intended it to be. Then with a little ingenuity you should be able to cobble something up to get around the "special tools" they call for (if any). Come back with the query, Can I make a tool that will do the job of (proper name of special Harley tool) or find a generic equivilent? If you don't have a service manual for your scoot. Get one. People on this site are not long suffering of those who dont have a manual and ask for technical advise. They will know.


It ain't that I'm wiser. It's only that I've spent more time with my back to the wall. I've got a couple more years on you baby that's all.
