This guestion gets asked often. The answer is yes and this is how I did it. This is the seal we will be changing. First we remove the seal. Drill two holes in the seal. I used 1/8 drill bit with stop made with electrical tape. This is to keep the drill from going in to deep. Now install two #8 sheet metal screws into the holes we just drilled. Go in far enough to catch the seal. Now use a pair of Vise grips on the head of the screw and pull. I only had to pull on just one of the screw to get the seal out. This is what you we see when the seal comes out. Clean the area where the seal sits and center shaft bushing. I would of liked to change the bushing but it is no longer available from Yamaha. Now it is time to install the new seal. Lightly oil the bushing. I used a piece of PVC tubing to knock in the seal. Now you done. I can only use five pictures per thead so more to come.
