track replacement ?'s

I'm putting a new track my 95 xlt. I have it down to where i am about to pull the drive shaft out. I thought this was going to be a breeze, until i found out that with the 4 drive cogs you can't just easily slide the shaft out like you would be able to with the 2 cog driveshaft.
So i just want to doublecheck something. Looking at it, it appears that i have to remove the chaincase to gain enough clearance to pull the shaft out. Am i right about this or is there an easier way that i am not seeing.

96 Polaris XLT Indy special
73 Arctic Cat Cheetah 440

you can pull just the bearing in the bottom of the chaincase out, but it is faster and easier to just pull the chaincase out completely.
