    I don't use any tools when i remove mine.

    I pull the slide ring back with my bare hands and then pry out the circlip with a little flathead screwdriver.

    and that is why you are called the hulk

    I just yanked on the slide ring to see if I could pull it without the tool, but I found something interesting. The entire part circled in yellow moves. This is the driveshaft and it shouldn't move this much should it? I'm talking about half of an inch of play Is this normal? I am pulling on the correct part aren't I? the part I'm pulling on and the direction are in red.

    I know I have to remove everything to do this. All the parts are still installed in the picture because I don't want to remove the SC and everything until I have all the parts in since I can still ride....have to minimize my down time.

    Yes, the drive shaft may move back with the slide ring a little bit.

    I can get the carbon rings, but it takes me forever. Its best you deal with Riva, or whomever direct on something like that.

    Thanks for the response. Looks like my girly arms aren't strong enough to pull that back. I'll need to get the little tool. My local stealer quoted me $76.84 + tax and minimum of 1 week for the stupid little seal. I'll give riva a call as well as some other places.
