Uh Oh! starter wizzing sprauge clutch sound

Well, Got a great deal buying a 2008 K12 w/106 K on the clock. Knew I would have to deal with some maintenance related projects. I looked at Daves thread and how he solved it. I'm putting on the heat lamp now while I begin the tear down. Need to check the valves, replace the air and fuel filter and plugs. Drill weep hole check slave cyl bleed brakes. Wow I get to go buy a lift I'de rather ride...I need a Clymers if anybody's got one to sell.

Re: Uh Oh! starter wizzing sprauge clutch sound

I removed the entire engine when I did mine, someone else has done it by dropping the transmission, removing the clutch, then removing the intermediate housing without dropping the engine out.

I would still drop the engine out if I had to do it again though. Considerably easier to do all the work with the engine sitting in front of you rather than on your back reaching up under the bike. Just my opinion though.

Just a little info for your future use, it is "sprag", not "sprauge".

These were invented decades ago by this company:

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

Re: Uh Oh! starter wizzing sprauge clutch sound

Oh thanks...thought Howard invented it Got the plastic off and put up where I wont be falling over it. Put the heat lamp to start warming it up, installed my GPS harness. Got an idea...soft face drift hammer...4 firm taps later I hear a "SPROING" Tried to start...no joy. Bumped the starter and tapped and Vroom! I'm going to see how frequently it occurs and enjoy denial for a while

rather than on your back reaching up under the bike.
Well if you had a Handy lift you would not be on your back.
I bet less time is spent pulling the intermediate case with the engine in the frame. Also much less hardware to remove. Just my experience, BTDT.
