Hello to all riders who have a plastic oil pump gear ,would anyone know the % of failures for this gear problem ?, Apparently the reason it fails is the CLUTCH SPRING TABS extend through the bottom of the clutch basket ... and make contact with the plastic gear , keeping it from rotating ,, causing it to strip the teeth ..... Anyone know if the tabs extend through the clutch basket from clutch wear ? maybe some preventive maintenance will safe the trouble of splitting the motor to change gear to metal
I believe it is still being handled by Kawasaki after failure but I'd not wait for that to happen. For the Judges Steel Oil Gear check over on the main VROC site at VROC :: Vulcan Riders and Owners Club in their archived data area.
