I have to disagree about Copperdog's video on this. The manual has you push through the cover with a slim rod to prevent the rotor coming off with the cover during removal as well as installation. I applied this method and felt much more secure about not dropping the innermost washer/bushing into the sump. I just swapped mine out and all was good. I also had to jog the rear wheel a bit to enmesh the gears. The manual also says to replace the o-ring in the bushing. This is to ensure that oil makes its way to the outermost bearing.

How hard was it to get the cover off while holding the rotor in? What o-ring are you referring to?
