So I am a novice Honda Twin tinkerer............

oil coming out of tach cable......googled tachometer oil seal, found it, bought from 4 into 1 for $8. Screw for tach came out easy......thinking this is going to be easy........it just slides right in with a socket about the same size as the hole.......easy enough until.......

How do i get the old seal out? Its way back in there........is there any way to do it without having to take other parts off?

I had a lot of jobs done on my CL360 recently by a local guy and this was one of them. I know he removed the cylinder head to do it...
I'm getting ready to do this on my sons bike. Found a video...the guy used dental picks to remove a seal from a 750. It was pretty recessed. I can't tell in Joel's #6 post how deep the seal is but I'm hoping it'll be as easy as the guy in the video.

EDIT:

Definitely no need to remove the cover...a few whacks of the impact driver backed the screw out. Picked up a pick set from Horrible Freight...took about 2 seconds to reach into the well & pull the seal out.
