Sliding Clutch

Hi guys

Been reading your advices and comments about how to fix Sliding clutch.

just a quick question, IF clucth plates are contaminated\soaked with oil(Brake oil, not engine oil) is it enough to change plates and gaskets as nothing else is damaged?

I have 2004 LT with 14000Miles on the clock

Re: Sliding Clutch

If you replace your clutch it's a big job and your bike will be torn down to just about the frame and front wheel. It's a good idea to replace all the seals inside your bell housing (trans seals and rear main seal) while you have it open. You also need to drill the bleed hole in the bottom of the housing that holds the slave cylinder so the brake fluid will drain out before contaminating your new clutch. And of course you will replace the slave cylinder if that is what caused your clutch failure. By the time you get all this done, you will be very familiar with your LT. Good luck............

Re: Sliding Clutch

Hi Rattler

Thnx for info and yes all the seals ofcourse need's to be changed and "slave" if it's the cause of the damaged, but generally nothing else.

Weep hole is already to do list.

Not true. Just take rear wheel, final gear, axle with housing, center stand and tranny away. Also part of tupperware has to be removed. This is how I did it.
