Clutch removal and reassembly

There used to be in archives an article by cccpastorjack about the removal of the clutch. I found it 2 weeks ago but now when I have a printer handy on a buddies computer I can't find it again. I did a google search then and can't seem to duplicate it. I did find something but the link did not work correctly. I need info on the clutch and swingarm removal along with tranny. Any help much appreciated. Found the tools part etc, just not the teardown manual stuff one needs and have not!
My clutch went along with the rear bearing failure but took 8 months more riding to completly start to really slip. Thank Guys

Re: Clutch removal and reassembly

There is an EXCELLENT writeup done by Kenny Crawford (BlauBeeMr) on changing the main seal, which of course includes clutch removal - see http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthre...highlight=lift. I would also use Kevin Cookes writeup on the weep hole drilling procedure, and watch the video on site by John Zeller (it is a sticky). That will help in getting the rear end items off.

Of course, the Clymer manual is invaluable. The shop manual as well (which you can get on line for free).

See also Dave's great pictures at http://picasaweb.google.com/dtnicks/LTClutchRepair#.

The Pastor Jack photos you want are at http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19720

I will soon need to do a clutch replacement so I have been collecting this information.

Re: Clutch removal and reassembly

If you're asking about the driveshaft removal from the trans output shaft, it comes off hard. There's a small clip on the output shaft, and under (or inside) the driveshaft. It takes some coaxing to get it off. And when it goes back on, be sure it seats with a snap. If it doesn't, it'll come loose, and make lots of noise. This I know.

Re: Clutch removal and reassembly

Would that be like just a round clip on say a transaxel for a front wheel drive car type clip? Appreciate the heads up a pry bar should do it with a block of wood if thats all it is!

Use a large screwdriver in the right side pivot hole.Use paper or cloth to protect the threads.
