Hi all

Hope everyones enjoying the weather and riding oftenand far.

Clutch is slipping in 5th w roll on around 3k so it'll be time soon. I'll do this job one way or another. Haven't done it before. I really have no room to host a session but wouldn't mind offering up my LT for a session if someone has a space and there is interest. I'm willing to do all the wrenching, hopefully w guidance if someones done this before. Ill provide food for the group and whatever else makes it work.

I've been involved in four... Come on out to CA, and I'll help! :rolleyes:

Seriously though, Kenny (AKA BlauBeeMr) has created a very detailed document (click here) that will guide you through the entire process of clutch and/or rear main seal and clutch slave replacement. There are some steps that require extra hands though!

Good luck - if I can do it, then anybody can!

I have not changed a clutch yet & it is not something I would do at a tech session. I just think with what's involved I wouldn't want more than one helper & certainly would not rush the job at least until I have done my first one. I have seen many times that to many hands working on one job can lead to loose parts or parts left off all together with a major job like a clutch change. I think I'm about two hours away & I'll send you my cell # because it's much easier to talk than to type.

2 people is Max for this job. One to read from the clymer manual, the other to wrench. Any more than that it gets confusing. Figure a good 12 to 16 hrs.
