I just replaced both seals on my final drive last week. I had bought a final drive from E Bay a few years ago and decided to install it last Oct. The short story is it leaked oil. The pinion seal can be done without removing F.D. from bike. To make installing new seal EASY which is about 4" in dia., I used the 3 lug nuts spaced equally to push in seal evenly. I had to use washers to build up space between lug nut and seal because lug nuts bottomed out. Using a nut with the correct thread would be easier. It worked like a charm. The other seal which is located on the input shaft side was easy also but F.D. had to be removed from bike. It was a 4 hour job, but I had practiced messing with the seals on my original F.D. that I still had.
Good Luck!
