For clutch kits? You better bet there's some specialty tools needed. I would maybe do it with somebody who knows what they're doing, rather than doing it yourself first time.

What year GSXR? Im willing to bet you will NOT need any special tools! to change the clutch pack out in my 01 GSXR1000, all i have to do is take the clutch cover off(the one on the right side of the bike with you sitting on it, hold the basket with a rag, remove the 5 allen bolts holding the pressure plate and clutch springs in(dont quite remember the number at the moment), pull out the old plates, put in the new plates alternating fiber,steel,fiber, put the pressure plate, clutch springs and 5 bolts back in, torque the spring bolts to approx. 7 lb-ft., and put the cover back on, then adjust the clutch.

No specialty tools required. I just did mine a couple of days ago and it is a lot easier than you would think. Just find someone on your side of town that can walk you through it for the first time.

Also a good idea to soak the fibers in engine oil overnight so you don't fire it up dry the first time.

You should also measure your steels and look for overheating, and measure the overall stack height... too much or too little can lead to problems getting it adjusted correctly.


But many just swap the fibers and get away with it.

If you swap like for like then stack height shouldn't be an issue. Its a 15 min. job once you get it down. I used the manual for the first one. Now I think I can do it blind folded. And there are no special tools needed. If you were on my side of town, I would offer to show you how.

I buy the steel and the friction. That way its all new and there are no surprises or parts needed when I get in there. I buy the springs too. Thats just me though.

Ron Ayers or MrCycles web sites have good prices, and Motorcycles Unlimited can usually match. Just check the microfiche for the number of steels and fibers required. Also check model specific forums for cheap upgrade springs to give a little more holding power (like using ZX6 springs on my 12R)
