I have a 2001 ZG1200 XII the oil seal in the Gear Driven

Customer Question

I have a 2001 ZG1200 XII the oil seal in the Gear Driven assembly is leaking oil and it is dripping out at the swing arm to gear driven assembly boot joint. This gear driven assembly is in my hand after removing the swing arm there are four bolts holding it to the transmission body. Not to hard but I don't have the tool###-##-####to hold the gear and remove the bolt holding it in place . Also reading the manual. After replacing the seal it needs to be torqued to load the bearings to the correct pre-load. I need someone I can take this to or send this unit to that I can trust to do it correctly by the book. The Kawasaki dealer here in Bridgeport WV had no clue or the gear holding tool.
