Unhappy good news and bad

Took the bike out for the first decent ride since full service, new springs and new brake lines, the bike went a treat for the first hour, then it happened the clutch crapped its self and is slipping, so i guess it will be off the road for another couple of months till I can get this sorted out. I don't have a hoist to lift it up, question: can the clutch be removed and replaced on the ground??

Re: good news and bad

Oh no, that's not good.
To replace the clutch on the ground i.e. in the garage I presume, without a lift would be quite doable. Just heaps harder on your knees.
I would recommend you have access to some overhead rafters to support the frame. Think of the process as lifting the frame up from the engine rather than dropping the engine down. It's really a combination of both.
At least the rear of the frame. The engine case rotates from the forward mounts sort of.
Supporting the underside of the side cases ( or the attachment frame rails ) with some timber and lifting with a car jack works fine once you have disconnected all the bits that get hung up.

Re: good news and bad

Sorry to hear that Linton... wish I was closer to give a hand... I need to learn how to do that for when I replace mine with the Siebenrock I bought a while back... but wont do that until its slips while riding.
There's some lifts on Ebay sellers in Oz for about $400-500 I've been watching for a while...

Thanks Chris,
bloody strange the clutch was fine prior to doing all the latest work, the only thing I did was hose out (pressure wash) the brake fluid that was sitting on top of the engine from the burst brake line, I was sorta hoping maybe it was water ingress, I took it out yesterday again went fine no slip for 10km then started to slip so I guess its gone. I am so disappointed after waiting 2 months to get get it going, don't know how long its going to be this time no extra cash at the moment
