2002 YZ426F balancer gear nut

I am a little bit concern about the noise on my 426 2002, it runs great. last time I change the oil I found some metal particles on the oil filter, I want to be sure that the balancer gear nut and the clutch basket nut are not loose,My question is how hard is to get to the balancer gear nut? Do I have to go through the water pump? I have worked on the clutch but that"about it. Any special tools required?

The right side crankcase cover has to be removed. Other than the fact that you have to drain the coolant, it's not that big a job.

when removing the cover, what about the water pump? Do I have to remove the water pump impeller from the shaft? any help would be appreciated.
