Re: Looks like I'm goin' in again!
Well I finally got the tranny out. Front was very oily dirty but not wet. Input shaft feels a bit rough but I will know more when I open it up Saturday afternoon. Alternator feels very smooth but I will inspect the brushes. I have yet to open the starter but it also feels smooth. Next is the clutch and the intermediate housing to get to the sprag clutch.
The Sprag clutch was pristine so I am almost sorry I pulled the intermediate case. The one I pulled out of Dave Dragons old LT at 100 K + was quite stained and gummy. Quite a difference. But I did soak it just for good measure in Gunk Carb cleaner and it now looks brand new.
The starter needs a new front bearing as the seal is stuck to the nose of the starter and the brushes are half worn. Found a local shop that does Denso starters so I will get the info on parts tomorrow.
The output shaft rear bearing had a partially pressed in shield that was causing some drag on the bearing. I have never replaced that seal on my bike and the only time anyone was in there was back in 2006 when I had the dealer replace the seal under warranty for a leak. Can't believe it had been like that for that long.
The clutch disc was not that worn out at all, it measured 5.43 mm with 4.6 as the wear limit (in contrast my slipping clutch was about 5.2 mm IIRC). The metal parts showed considerable grooving so I am just going with fresh all around. I already have the Seibenrock "better than stock" disc. My local dealer is very slow in getting my parts as I ordered them a week ago last Wednesday.
Looks like we can now edit older posts!
I got my injectors back from Mr Injector and they look real nice with new o-rings and pintel caps. He changed out the filter screens too. See the report on flow before and after. Bear in mind I have always used top tier gas (mostly Shell) for all of the 100,000 + miles on these injectors. They were not all flowing the same, but they are now.
Still waiting on additional clutch parts and one bearing for the transmission the the reassembly can begin.
