dont pull on the fork to hard. if you dislodge the fork off the pivot ball(off memory it has like a slide clip spring retainer type setup) it can be a pita to replace. otherwise na simple job. just remove the clutch slave. makes life easier.

the last couple of times ive had the motor out or gearbox i have sikaflexed the box and motor together so no leaks there. but silly me has a split boot as well. i should replace it one day.
so to answer your question yes its a good idea but no mine isnt fully sealed. only cause im a tight arse and wont buy a reasonably cheap part.
