Recommended Posts

OK, I bought the bike (see lower post). Are there any comprehensive tech articles on this or will I have to buy a manual? I've changed clutches on airheads, is this much different? The on line parts fiche tells me there isn't a lot more to it.

In a word...yes. First, familiarize yourself with the Search Feature.

 

You might want to spend some time looking at the M/C FAQ though it doesn't specifically mention the clutch replacement.

 

Look at these different threads...

this one and this one and this one too.

 

Jamie, aka KMG_365 has written many excellent articles and is quite knowlegable about, well, darned near everything! grin.gif I did a search with the parameters of 1-year and his user name and "clutch replacement" and found a gem: HERE.

 

You'll want to balance what the manual says with questions to us here. I know that Haynes tells you to completely remove the rear subframe, which is absolutely not necessary.

 

Have fun! wave.gif

What he said + When intalling the friction plate make sure you put it in exactly as shown...not as..ahem..a certain member or this board once did and put it in backwards in which case you get to to do the job twice dopeslap.gif

 

Stop snerking out there...it's easier than you think to put it on the wrong way. tongue.gif

 

Good luck, it's a big job but you and the bike will feel great when it's done.

I just rebuilt my clutch after 27k (7k by me in the last 6 months). This forum has been a huge help, and though I can't think of everyone who's been of assistance -- thanks to you all for posting your trials, tribulations, and advice!
