Thank you very much @HDBitchin  for your attention to this. I will look it over tomorrow, when I am not quite so tired, and will get back to you. This having fun in Florida is hard on a guy. LOL ;D We are going to replace the shiffter seal in my brothers 02 CVO Road King. The Final Drive Belt has 120k on it and we will not get any closer to it so might as well do it then. ^*? :D

The videos is a good overview of how the job is done, Use your manual I am not sure why  he put oil on the seal  between the stator and inner primary my manual does not say to do so and I cant think of a reason to do so. Also be careful of using your torque wrench in removing bolts it the removal exceeds the max torque value it can cause it to go out of calibration. If you are worried of hurting the bearing I would tape the shaft before removal not just when you are putting the primary back on.
