usually; but the spec is only going to be a few millimeters.

Check the front of the chapter before the illustrations and instructions on how to do the repairs. Should be a section w the specifications. If not, you need a better manual.

Usually in the front of the chapter for the clutch/drivetrain there should be a specification for the clutches and the steels. Even the springs for the clutch will have an unloaded spring measurement. Along w your torque specs etc, etc.


Make sure you soak the clutches before installing them and continuously check and make sure the release works properly/adjusted correctly before reinstalling the cover w the new gasket. Lifting the rear tire off the ground and spinning the tire manually in gear should be able to whilest the clutch is disengaged.

That's probably the socket to remove the nut that holds the basket in. The books will direct you to remove it. There is no need to go that deep into it. Once you do it the first time you won't believe how simple a job it is.

Once you put in new fibers the clutch will probably need to be adjusted. When you soak the fibers make sure you keep track of them. They may have different part numbers and they will look almost identical. I soak them in ziplock bags. I soak over night when I have the time. Many will suggest at least 30 min. I think the books say 4 hrs. If you can start it the first time with the rear wheel off the ground.

Hmm. My pressure plates have always been a 6 or so small dia. bolts.
The over all thickness (stack) is usually more important than the individual thickness of each fiber. Your in there just replace the things.

yes replace the steels. I didnt and now mine has a slight "shudder" vibration when i take off from a stop, nothing terrible. Just annoying and wish i would have done the steels when i was in there.

already ordered fibers. the thing is that i enjoy taking stuff apart and putting it back together again so if it turns out i need new steel i'd be more then happy to do it all over again.

By then your fibers will be worn all wrong due to warped steels. That's only if they were bad though.
