The only real special tool that I am aware of is a 30mm deep socket with a window cut in the side for when you reinstall the swing arm and rear drive.

There are bunch of posts regarding the 30mm socket with pictures. Some people have made their own with a grinder, others have had the window machined.

Good Luck,
Kevin

Not really a special tool -- (Although John Bowles actually MADE me one!), but, when you replace the tranny input shaft seal (output/rear side) -- the one just in front of the Slave Cylinder, make sure to measure the depth of the currently installed seal before removal, record it and install the new one (you can use a proper diameter socket or piece of PVC pipe) to the same depth. Do not drive it in until it seats. It WILL leak and ruin all your hard work.

For something like that, in my case anyway, the best tool is a VISA card with a good credit limit.
