clutch cover gasket

How long should it take a shop to replace one on a 07 zx10? Just had it done and it took them 1.5 hrs. Seems really long to me.

Long enough to do the following:
put it on a stand or lift
pull the right side fairings without breaking any tabs or losing any parts
set your fairing somewhere it won't get damaged
drain your oil
clean around the clutch case
unbolt your clutch case cover (possibly mess with wires and sensors, dunno about yours specifically)
remove your clutch case cover (again, probably gonna mess with wires and sensors)
pull off the gasket and clean off any gasket pieces that stuck
actually clean the gasket ring with a light solvent
align the new gasket (once again, those pesky wires and sensors)
re-install clutch case cover (...wires and sensors...)
torque it down in pattern
re-fill oil and check for leaks
if sealed correctly, re-install fairings

shops do not stay around long if they are regularly ripping folks... too many good people in town to have to put up with that...
check out our sponsors next time you need some work done... good folks one and all... I tend to go to Motorcycles Unlimited myself.. like the treatment and harrassment I get there...

1.5 hours is completely reasonable for a reputable shop.

It can be done faster, with more risk of improperly doing it.

Well they prob finished sooner but just like at a car shop. u say can u change my water pump and if in the shop estimate books say it will take them 3 hours they will charge u three hours even if they finish quicker or take longer than estimated time. But shops sometimes will say its more and also charge triple for any parts.
