Clutch tear down, what can be saved?

Okay, looks like I'll be doing the weep hole repair and clutch rebuild on my '04 LT. Less than 20,000kms (yes KMs not miles) pathetic isn't it? Not a lot of riding. Clutch is starting to slip in top gear when giving her a bit of throttle.

When I get up to my elbows in bike guts, what parts can be saved for reinstallation? I'm looking at a bill of AUD$800 for bits and Mrs Dog is not impressed. If I can reduce the replacement parts, it might go better for me.

TIA and ride safe all.

Regards

Unless scored or heat damaged, you can easily re-use the pressure plate, diaphragm spring, spacer ring, and cover plate. All that can be cleaned up easily. I only replaced the clutch plate itself, along with the engine oil seal and O-ring, and new clutch cover plate screws and lock washers, and engine output shaft nut and thrust washer. I also replaced all the transmission oil seals while it was out.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

Smile Thank you oh great and wise one

My thanks Dave for the response. That looks a bit better for me, especially approaching Mrs Dog for funds. I'll get my baby stripped down soon and see what the damage is inside. Then a more informed judgement can be made for what needs to be replaced. If I can get away with just replacing the clutch plate and the gaskets / seals, I'll feel better about this.

I take it the cover plate you mention is the clutch housing cover P/N 21 21 2 333 449?

Sigh, the price you pay for luxury........

Yes. That is the friction surface on the rear of the clutch plate, the pressure plate on the front side is the other.

Thumbs up

Thanks again Dave for the feedback. I have heard that the VW clutch plate is a pretty close match to the K1100LT plate. Suppose there is no chance of it matching the 12LT? One can but dream.

No set back yet Chris, just another hiccup in ownership. Still seriously considering triking the bike when it gets to heavy for my back.

Ride safe all.

Just a thought..... IF you are going to go through all the trouble to tear her down. I chose to replace all the pieces.
