The shifter seal is easy to replace. Not sure which model bike you are inquiring about but after you remove the shifter you usually can gently pry out the old seal or worst case run a sheet metal screw into it in order to gain purchase on the seal to pull it out. Once you clean the area the new seal presses in relatively easily. Some use an appropriate sized socket to hold against the seal and gently tap it into place.

Do a forum search and you'll fine step by step instructions how to do it. Since you are in there you may want to consider buying the shift stabilizer and you'll never have a leaking seal again. That result on top of better shifting.

I'd love to win the shifter bracket in this month's contest!
