if you mean is there a way to do it without removing the primary chain drive and primary chaincase, the answer is no.

it's a 2 hour flat-rate job. I've done it in less. most people take longer.

the best way to do it is to just decide it has to be done and follow the procedure in the service manual.

let me know if you need more help.
