The clutch centering tool is not needed as Pete said.We used a different approach. By measuring the inner diameter of the clutch cover and the OD of the friction plate hub, we worked out the gap as shown in the pic.Bolt on the cover loosely, use a suitable size rod to go around the gap and torque it up after that.The gear box (transmission) just "slips back in like pushing a greasy stick up a dog's bum"
Thanks, Phang! No offense, but I really wouldn't want to be a dog down in the southern hemisphere! Shaun
No, we don't shaft a stick in a dog's bum like the aussie, we cook them in curry or sweet and sour sauce
That way the box just slips back in like pushing a greasy stick up a dog's bum.
Hoo boy, this sounds like it's going to be fun. Good thing I have lots of spare time to work on projects like this. Cheers,Shaun
sorry to hear of your woes Shaun. Dan gave me the bug....im in Espanola heading for the Soo and point north. Eldo, of course.
Thanks, Pete. You do, erm, have a way with words that is quite unlike anyone else I have encountered. Hope you never change. Shaun Shaun: I really admire your equanimity in the face of this disaster. I'd be fuming after the second starter removal! Good luck! Jurgen
I can't think of any gaskets you need to replace to do a clutch?
HI, folks.I'm digging in to change the clutch, and thought I would tap the knowledge and experience of WG. Swingarm and shock are out (latter to be replaced by a lowered Matris unit), and I am digging into the engine mounts, wiring, etc.. A couple of questions that I haven't seen answers for in the manual (yet): 1. Does anyone know what gaskets I am likely to need to replace? I'm thinking intake manifolds, exhaust head pipes, etc. I don't know if any of these modern items are considered reusable.2. What retains the driveshaft/u-joint in the gearbox? I'm sure I will find the answer to this shortly, but it never hurts to ask!Cheers,Shaun
Thanks, Jurgen. I won't say that I haven't invented a few new words in the process , but it's fortunate that I enjoy working on motorcycles!Cheers.Shaun

With care, no gaskets should be needed. I damaged a gasket in the Y pipe when I jammed the header pipe in poorly.The driveshaft is held to the output shaft with a spring loaded clip. A good 'soft' rod to tap/pry it off will help.
Thanks, Wayne. So, just to confirm, it's not a clip that I need to remove and then slide the driveshaft out? I just need to lightly persuade the driveshaft to overcome the tension of the spring-loaded clip?
Go for it Shaun - we're rooting for you. I won't even be disappointed if you ride the Stelvio to Lavigne after all your efforts Nick
Yes, though it may need a bit more than 'light' persuading.Of course grease all splines and swingarm bearings when reassembling.
Here's a photo of the inside of the splined Cardan shaft...see the clip? It takes a right smart smack to pop the joint off the output shaft. You can also try pushing a wedge between the end of the output shaft and the joint.
Hi, Pete.First time doing this on a modern CARC bike, so don't know what to expect. For example, the manual indicates that I need to remove the exhaust system (which I am about to do) in order to drop the engine, and I don't know if that means that the series of exhaust gaskets can be re-used, or if it expected to re-use these. For example:http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=26&products_id=4561http://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=26&products_id=3116 Same with the intake manifold gaskets. You had indicated that I could just disconnect the manifolds at the heads, and leave them in the air box (thanks for that tip). Wondered if I should plan to replace the intake manifold gaskets? Overall, I am trying to put together a list of parts to order, and am trying to be complete as possible as every additional order takes at least a week to arrive.Thanks for the help -- it's very much appreciated!Shaun
