Clutch spring install

Would love to upgrade my springs! Just worried I might have a problem with the install, I do all of my own work on both cars and bikes. However I have never messed with anything like this. How hard is it?

Clutch spring install

With a clutch puller and spring compressor it is all very easy. The clutch puller is almost a must though and the spring compressor can be made by a press or something, that is what we did. i would say about a 2 or 3 diffuculty level if you have the right tools.

Clutch spring install

The guy that does most of my work has a large press. We just used and flat piece of metal and two sockets. Got the spacing and welded them to the flat metal, then just compressed the spring and replaced the lock ring. Sorry I don't have any pics.

Clutch spring install

You only need the clutch compression tool if you are replacing the secondary spring. If you are replacing the primary which is usually that is sold in most clutch kits the only special tool needed is a torque wrench. Remove the primay bolt .....left hand thread. Remove the eight bolts that hold the spring cover in place. Remove old spring install new one with washers per instructions or as you removed them install cover and torque to spec 113 in/lbs. Install primary bolt torque to 69 ft/lbs. Install clutch cover and enjoy. I will try to upload a picture.

Clutch spring install

What he said is exactly true, the primary spring (what he is describing is very easy). The secondary is the one that can give a little trouble. Just in case you don't know, the primary is basically what changes your stall and the secondary spring works to hold your belt tighter, therefore if you are gonna run bigger tires you will need a secondary spring or your belt WILL slip. If you are keeping stock size then the secondary is basically up to you.

Yes I see, after a ride yesterday with my 27" outlaws I fell into a hole that I should have made it throught, but my belt started slipping. So I need a secondary spring change? What spring color would yall recommend in the case that I dont wanna loose top end, just stop the slipping.

almond secondary and pink primary would help. if you go red your going to have a large top end loss.
