My bearing in the rear wheel of my 2009 KLR 650 broke yesterday, and I need to replace all three of them.

I am looking at some bearings that are sealed on both sides. Do I need separate seals as well, or are the seals on the bearings itself sufficient?

The sealed bearings are all you need.

How hard are the bearings to change? I would like to change mine out to sealed (several places sell the kits for front and back with all the bearings required).

Fairly easy job. A hammer and a brass drift and you're golden.

A long steel drift punch is perfectly acceptable for use of removal of the bearings which you intend to Replace!
Just be certain to remove the circlip on the outside Left of sprocket hub and outside Right of the main hubs, front and rear.

When installing the New Bearings, Be Certain to tap ONLY ON the Outside bearing RACE! Best to use a Large socket as the install driver.
And don't forget to re-install the INSIDE spacer in the Sprocket Hub.
