Is there a way to check the condition of the slinger? Is there anyway to service it other than pulling down the engine? Any help appreciated. Best

The only way is to pull the engine, tear it down. If you don't know when and if they have been done, it s good advise to bite the bullet an do it. It is not real hard, but it does take some tools and skills. On the other hand, if you get grit in the rod bearings you can buy your self a crank that may be more expensive than the bike itself.

While you are doing the slingers, consider replacing the main bearings at the same time, cheap and you have it apart any way. (Same for rings, hone the cylinders, take a good look at the valves.
