starter clutch in and fixed
Finished the starter clutch project today.
Hugojose you are right to say it is a 2 weekender project. I did it in three easy days , could have done it in 2
if I had all the parts and had done it before.
Anyway mine works now. It I would say is 98% perfect.
I used the kit only - I took a risk purely to know.
It is easy and you can easily do it with the engine in ! It is if you take you time almost enjoyable.
You must have a electric impact gun, a good impact driver for philips bolts and be methodical.
You also need a massive socket to use as a bearing press. used a 46mm to get the baring back in
on the rhs. no real need for freezing and heating ...
On mine I only used the repair kit, springs, rollers and bushes.
I cleaned the areas where these sit with a dremel brass brush and sanded with 1500 wet and dry
to make the surface totally smooth - yes a risk but it is purely a mechanical operation.
I had to clean the internal threads out of the starter clutch too.
I put it all back together with molyslip lubricating the rollers.
All back in within 3 hours and now works fine.
also i used a list from a this site. i did a search for starter clutch repair and this chap did a list
of every step. So concise i barely needed to look at the haynes, or workshop manual.
I might try and write this up but presently i am burnt out with this bike.
If anyone wants help let me know.
Cheers hugo - your the man who said it was possible when the engine is still in.
Saved me loads of time !
