Question R1200GS pinion seal

I am going to change the leaking pinion seal on my '09. How hot does one have to get the housing in order to release the thread locker (OEM, I assume)? How much torque is on the seal retainer/threaded ring? Thanks.

Do you mean the final drive input pinion seal?

Are you sure it's the pinion seal that's leaking?

I only ask because the transmission output shaft seals leaking is much more common.

Yes. It's the final drive pinion seal. I had replaced my transmission output seal last winter, and still had a leak. There is no lube up on the transmission end, only at the final drive end. When I pulled my driveshaft (sent it to Bruno's for u-joint replacement), it was all wet around the pinion area. Figured, this is a good time to replace it.

OK, do you have the appropriate castle nut tool to get the nut off? If not, you would probably be better off taking off the FD and giving it to your dealer to replace the seal.
