Thanks everyone for there ideas.
I gave it a lot of thought about different ways of doing it. Of course the best way would be to disassemble and machine. I would have liked to do that, but I was worried about finding parts. As everyone knows, you never know what your going to find when you break into and engine. Anyways, I used a dremel and took my time.
I put everything back together this morning and went for a quick ride. So far, so good. I hope I didn't just jinx it. I'm going to take it for a longer ride tomorrow morning after I fire up my smoker for a 12 lb brisket. Again, thanks everyone for there help.
Tom, Thanks for posting pictures for me and all your help. This forum is awesome.

To the untrained eye or one not familiar with KLR600's or no service manual in hand, one would not know that that is not 100% factory!

I’m on a 10 day ride through New Mexico and Arizona and only have a phone, so can’t do the usual embedding via Flickr.
Photos are attached.
Looks like a nice job done.
BTW, I got two emails with the same photos in both emails.

I just ground off the lip and installed a new seal. I put a little sealant around the outside. I'm going to let it cure overnight and finish up tomorrow. Fingers crossed. I'll email Tom and see if he can post some pics.

|pdwestman||I would lay the bike down on its RH side to see better & have more control of the tool. Remember to grease the damaged seal area to keep the chips out. And remember to wear your safety goggles when grinding off the lip & blowing away the debris. You'll do fine.|

I'll keep you guys posted on the project. Not sure when I'm going to tackle this. I'm a little nervous.

Correct, TOO deep.
On the 650 case the seal needs to be Flush/Level with the Exterior surface of the case. Once you grind off the Stupid retainer lip on your 600 case, its seal will be Flush/Level with the case. Correct?
Do NOT insert seal below level!
Engine oil must be allowed to enter the 4 scallops of the spacer collar to enter the hole in the transmission shaft to feed the 3 free-spinning gears & the kickstart gear. The o-ring in the groove of the transmission shaft seals the interior of the collar to prevent oil leaking out between the collar & the shaft.

Just to be clear.
The first 4 pics are from my bike, kl600. The next 2 pics are from the 650. Tom posted all of them as I'm having a problem posting pics. Are u saying the second set of pics(2 of the 650), the seal is too deep?

|Tom Schmitz||Yes, in the other thread I provided him with your post on flush installation.|

I don't think that Tom was encouraging you to attempt to grind out your case seal pocket to look like that.
I'll say again, just make it flush.
