Red face Oooh that smell, Can't you smell-----

That smell. You know the really toasted ,burnt cluch smell.
Well if you were here in the BubbaMonster Garage you could.
The update:
So far the Slave cyl. was dry.
The bell housing also looks dry, Really sooty, but dry.
The housing plate has a nice heat bluing effect visible as the tranny came away.
Got to go to work, sooo inspecting the seal on the engine will have to wait.
But, the initial findings look like no oil contamination. At least not what I have heard from others, ie, half a cup pouring out upon splitting the cases.
(Pics to follow, yeah ,I know i said that before.)

Bad smell

I know how bad a clutch can smell. Pull one out of a Big Peterbilt....twin 15 1/2" disks. Lots of black dust.

Did it piece-meal over several days , not really that long.
I fear the reassembly will be the lengthy and more painful aspect of this project.

As a mechanic in a former life, and now looking at these photos, I would suggest that clutch HAS been abused. Whether it be excessive slipping by the rider or inadvertant riding the clutch, who knows? but there is no way that this is normal wear and tear. There has been talk on this site of keeping the revs at 2500rpm and slipping the clutch while manouvering or doing U-turns Etc. This activity is instant death for a single dry plate clutch, not so for wet multi plate clutches as fitted to Japanese bikes and the like. A dry clutch will last the lifetime of a car or bike if not abused, unless you do horrendous mileage, then it may well be down to wear, but the blue hot spots on the flywheel and clutch pressure plate indicate abnormal clutch use.

Thumbs up

Good luck with the job . Looks like all is under control. I will be replacing my clutch and seals on trans and motor, slave cyl. etc. Did you purchase a clutch alignment tool ? Or will you use another method ? Plan on starting my job this weekend.
