For certain I would simply purchase the new deep spline clutch plates from MG cycle, and a new clutch hub along with a new intermediate plate. I assemble the clutch with no moly type lube, and everything works very smoothly.Also, I usually just tap in evenly most oil seals, with no special tools.
Thanks John,I was planning to use a light coating of SIG3000 & Moly Paste on the splines but will look into the dry film. The splines are wet with what looks like rusty oil. I'm thinking it leaked thru the clutch push rod seal. The bike has an 8 spring clutch but I'm not an agressive rider. I didn't find any obvious out of round in the crank bearings. The bike must have been well taken care of & ridden properly, ie, no lugging.Hi Phil,Is there a moly spray you like? Can I just install a new main seal without a tool by tapping it to flush with the rear bearing?Thanks for the link to your Daytona build, I'll go through it.Charles
Thanks Phil, I'll try the moly spray. I enjoyed reading through your Daytona engine thread.I'm more familiar with clutch spline issues with the R1100 series BMW's. It’s an ongoing concern since there's very little warning before you are left with no power. They can start failing in as little as 30-40,000 kilometers. The input shaft & splines are much finer than Guzzi’s. Other than fixing misalignments a sticky moly paste is recommended. Besides being stranded the big issue is the amount of labour involved in getting to the clutch. The bike is essential split in two. The LeMans hub is bigger & the splines are much more robust.Kiwi, I forgot to answer your question. No, I don't recall the clutch slipping despite the oil. That said, I have several projects underway & would rather not pull the transmission again. For a couple hundred $ I think I'll replace the works & upgrade to 4mm splines at the same time. In any case, the old splines appear to be 20-30% worn.Thanks again,Charles
• Can the input boss peg-nut be chiselled off & replaced with a standard hex nut?• What is the easiest way of holding the input boss for removal & installation?• Can you recommend which tools are worth buying vs making?Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.Charles
