Clutch replacement

On a 05 gsxr 600, is there a way to remove the clutch basket without having to buy a special tool?

You should just need to remove the nut. An impact will get it off. The nut has an indented spot. You can still impact it off with that spot dented. Hold the basket by hand and pull the trigger.

It calls for a tool if you don't use an impact. The book leads you to believe you need to remove the basket to change the clutch. You don't.

Yeah my service manual says I need to remove the basket, so I'm kinda stuck now because I don't have an impact or the special tool but if I could just put the plates in without removing theb basket that would be awesome.

You don't need to remove the whole basket to change the plates. If you are having a hard time getting the steels out, use a magnet. The type that are on the end of a extendable wand..

dude read the posts in your thread. it has been stated multiple times you do not need to remove the basket just to replace the fibers n steels....the manual is misleading on that.

Remember to rotate the last one on the outside one slot different from the rest.

That's why I order another one when I go in. Hate to be held up by a gasket. If it is in one piece leave it alone. Its common for it to stick. If it sticks to one side only and you don't have another leave it alone
