Default How do you remove shaft spacer On final drive??

I need to remove the shaft spacer on the splined shaft where the front pulley goes so I can replace is with a wider one to accommodate the chain drive front sprocket. I can't get a grip on it. After I removed the stock front pulley there's only like a 1/4" inch of the spacer sticking out of the oil seal. I'd really hate to have to have to take my bike to the dealer. Supposedly it just slides out but I'll be dammed if I can't get it out. Any help is appreciated.

Pull that oil seal? They're cheap to replace.

I thought bout doing that. Harley dealer prolly stocks that piece if I screw it up. Will oil pour out of that once I remove that seal?

Yeah. Just to level though so you'll want to drain it. Otherwise you won't know for sure how much to replace.
