I believe he means the chaincase bearing snap ring.

I use a short thumb wheel snap ring tool.

After removing the snap ring, you still must remove the ridge that builds up on the outside of the snap ring groove. If you don't and you try to drive the driveshaft and bearing out from the opposite side it can damage the case.

I use a small grinding wheel in a Dremel to remove the ridge.

You can also remove the chaincase as an assembly and leave bearing, snap ring and seal in position.
dskofich and too slow like this.

Thats the way i've done it....remove the chain case...way easier to install the new seals and the bearings.

yep it was the snap ring that holds the chaincase bearing in I was talking about.bitch of a spot to get the snap ring pliars in.


as far as a ridge .. once the snapring was out , I removed the speedo side housing then went underneath the tunnel and pried out on the retainer stop on the shaft on the backside of the case, gave it a twist , plop out fell the shaft.bearings still in the case.

the metal ring that's between the spline that goes into the case for the bottom sprocket and the actual shaft itself.

That's the seal sleeve to prevent oil from leaking out the back of the chaincase, there's an o-ring inside it.
