I am replacing a leaking gear shift seal on a 2004 z400 and I am running into some problems. I took the shifter off and also to the pin and large washer off to find the seal was in really bad shape. It didn't just pull out like I had hoped. I have created a couple little tools to try to get in and pull all of the seal pieces out, but it appears that I am missing some of it. The new seal has some metal inside of the walls of it. I have yet to get that out of the z400. Can someone tell who to remove the entire seal? Did the original factory seal have the metal walled seal like the one I have purchased? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I sure hope the motor doesn't have to be taken out.

Yes i know that the seal comes with the little peice of metal that looks like a spring in it so dont worry about getting that out... lol if u do... good luck... and i just replaced my recently and i just grabed the seal with some neddle nose pliers and ripped it out (took a lot of force to get it out) and i didnt worry about wrecking it at all.. well sorry acutally i used the old seal to help push the new one back in.
Good luck
