How do I change the waterpump seal on my late model KX 85? Can I remove it from the outside or do I have to pull the main cover and pound it and the bearing out?

looking at the microfiche it looks like everything is installed from inside the clutch cover... but drain the coolant , pull the water pump cover , pull the impeller and see if the seal is behind that... youll be able to tell if its comes out that way or from the other side... pay attention to the direction the seals installed

took the entire cover off and pushed it out from the inside. Took as little emery cloth to the waterpump shaft but it did not have a groove. Ordered a new seal and side cover gasket. Pre-assembled the powervalve on the workbench and think I have that figured out as well.

Te bike is only 6 months old - sad I have to make this repair so soon.
