Red face A Clutch Question

I am installing a new slave and clutch. 1st time I've done it on the LT.

When ordering parts, how much of the clutch should I order? Just the clutch plate itself, or spacers as well? And, how difficult is it to replace the rear main seal at the same time?

I've got the bike up on Shealey's jack already. Should have the gearbox off by tomorrow. Had to acquire some pretty hefty tools to get the job done.

Thanks,

Paul in Houston

Until you get the clutch out you cannot tell if the pressure plate and cover plate have suffered any heat damage or scoring. I would wait to get the parts if you want to save money, because if they are not damaged all you need is the clutch friction plate itself. There is no need at all to replace the spacer ring, or the diaghphragm spring.

Also, get new clutch cover plate bolts and lock washers. They should not be re-used.

The main seal is not difficult, except getting the new one without distorting it. You MUST replace the O ring on the engine output shaft, as that is more likely to leak than the seal itself. Also, get the plastic thrust washer, as it is very easy to break after it has been in the engine for some time. Ask me how I know that!

That would certainly cover just about anything possibly needed, but more than likely items 2, 5, 6, and 8 will not be needed, can save a lot of money if they are OK.

Item 20 is an exhaust manifold stud, most likely not needed, but cheap enough to get a couple in case one breaks.

I would also use BMW synthetic 75/140 gear oil to refil the tranny.

What is item 24, repair kit? I could not find it in ETK.
