its not too bad, I just replaced mine. It was about 25 dollars and you need to remove your front sprocket cover (good time to clean off road grime) the cable hooks to a spring loaded adjuster, just unhook and rehook the new cable.

yes and you have to adjust it after your done. when you pull the cover and see what's behind it you won't want to put it back on till you clean under there.

Before you pull out the old cable, tie a length of string to it and pull it through. Use the string to pull the new cable back the same way

Casing? The sleve (sp?) around the cable? I replaced the whole cable with sleve as an assembly, the string is just to re-route the cable through the frame

paid the dealership $30 and had mine installed and my chain tightened........pretty good deal to me
If you are not mechanicaly inclined, it is a good deal. FYI, oil will not pour out. The sprocket cover bolts to the motor, it doesn't create a seal anywhere.
