Clutch overhaul

PostAuthor: Moise » Thu Sep 07, 2017 12:15 am

This is a follow on from a previous thread. viewtopic.php?f=25&t=16638

The clutch doesn't slip, but the drag with the engine hot is getting worse. There is also a vibration, as though something is warped, when you let the clutch out.

The parts have arrived - NOS steels and frictions plus new half plate and wire clip.

The frictions are old - the label predates any other Yamaha parts I've seen. Yamaha first used them in the 1973 TX750 right through to the 2015 FJR1300! They were packaged as a set in shrink wrap on cardboard.


I'll probably start stripping the clutch later today. Should I remove the clutch basket to check anything hidden behind it?
