clutch plate supposed to spin freely?

Before I start putting her back together from my initiation into the LT slave cylinder, clutch, engine seal replacement, is the clutch supposed to spin freely after assembly?

I've got the trany reinstalled but want to verify if the clutch should spin freely before I start reattaching everything and lowering the frame.

Re: clutch plate supposed to spin freely?

I think that unless you are engaging the clutch, no it should not turn freely. Is it posable the spring is in backwards?... But what do I know..

Bob,
I fear that I may be joining the club also. What were your initial symptoms that first made you notice you had a problem? I'm pretty good at tearing down stuff, but I don't think I could rebuild an engine. Did you find a lot of fluid leaking from the slave, and were you able to save most of the clutch? I have both the well written instructions as well as the 3 videos on drilling the weep hole.
Thanks!
Mark

If you are turning output shaft of installed transmission it should only rotate if you are in neutral, if in a gear should not rotate much

I was turning the clutch plate once I had bolted the assembly together before reinstalling the trany.

Re: clutch plate supposed to spin freely?

check post #6 on another thread for the proper assy and order of things in the clutch to make sure you didn't get some things on in the wrong order.

http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/k1200lt/...t-too-far.html

It is possible you switched the position of some of the components like the spacer ring as mentioned in that thread.

The disk should not rotate in the carrier, you have to push on the spot the clutch rod would push on in order to rotate disk once assy put back together, you have a problem

WeeeelllWelooks, looks as if I installed the spring backwards?? It looked nice and symmetrical when I installed it.

Time to fabricate a centering pin for when I reinstall it.

have to work on it just before sunrise around 4:30AM now, the coolest part of our 100F plus days.

Re: clutch plate supposed to spin freely?

Yup domed side facing to the rear of the bike and don't forget the spacer ring between it and the housing.

And it should look like this when you are done.
