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.

That stone just keeps on rolling. Bringing me some real bad news. The takers get the honey. The givers sing the blues.
