I'm answering because no one who might be more knowledgeable on this has.
First off, I have never laid eyes on an A1 case where the sprocket was off so I don't have first-hand knowledge.
That said, I have never seen a seal, which is a wear item, that was mounted such that it couldn't be serviced without the job being horrible and depressing. Certainly, every KLR I have seen was serviceable in this area.
The KLR600 A1 case was unique to that year (Kawasaki seemed to do a lot of stumbling and aimless wandering with both the KLR600s and the early KLR650s in the case department) and they have done, and still do, a lot of weird and stupid shit.
All in all, I'd have to say that I doubt the countershaft seal can only be replaced by splitting cases, but a picture would help everyone who might have some input.
My offer of hostin' and postin' pictures for you stands as per my PM.
