Interesting question. I have never had the coupler off my driveshaft. I always just remove the final drive gearcase, put a lot of grease on the gearcase splines, and pack the coupler with grease, then push it back together, which forces grease out from between the coupler and the final dive splines. I've been doing it this way forever. The only way to get the coupler off would be to remove the drive shaft, which I have not done yet. The Clymer manual does not even mention separating the coupler from the shaft that I can find, though I only took a quick look.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
