SOURCE: I cant get the big nut to loosen once the springs are removed.

Make your life easy, purchase an impact driver. This tool will allow you to remove stubborn screws, bolts and nuts with just the strike of a hammer. When re-assembling the engine, the driver will let you put the screws on tight. Mine is 45 years old and just as good as new. It is the most used tool in my shop.

If unable to get a driver, put the bike in first gear and have someone step on the rear brake pedal. Could you take a moment to rate my answer? Thanks!

Hi have an 88 cbx750 f2 the sprag in the slipper clutch is slipping, installed 2nd hand low mileage unit , better but still slipping above 6000rpm at times

Most of my friends with 88 slipper clutches spray paint their rims black, and it seems to help. One guy actually put new springs in his. Clutches slip because the friction material is worn out or the springs have lost their tension or their spacers. Put a washer on all the spring bolts and see if that helps, if it does, get new springs.

I have a 07 GS500F the starter is spinning but the engine is not turning over, any suggestions?

If the starter is spinning but the engine is not cranking, the sprag clutch (a gear that turns only one direction) is either bad or the nut on the end of the crankshaft that holds the sprag assembly is lose. Remove the stater or the cover that holds the sprag assembly and rotate the sprag gear and it should rotate only one direction. Rotate the large sprag gear with a screw driver wedged in the gear and the engine should turn one way an freewheel the other way. Check to make sure that the nut at the end of the crankshaft is tight or it will not turn the crankshaft.

How do i pull the clutch assembly on a 84 fxrs

Disconnect the battery. Drain the primary oil and remove the outer primary cover. Remove the four bolts that hold the clutch spring in. Remove the clutch spring and pressure plate. Then, you can remove the friction and steel plates. If you want to remove the entire clutch assembly, you'll have to remove the nut from the transmission mainshaft and remove the sprocket shaft nut. The mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on has LEFT-HANDED THREADS. Once you get the nut off, you'll need a clutch puller to get the clutch assembly off the tapered transmission mainshaft. Get one of the pullers that screw onto the mainshaft and you rap it with a hammer. You do not have to disassemble the clutch assembly completely to remove it from the mainshaft. You can take it off as a unit by removing the snap ring in the center and removing the adjuster plate. Remove the sprocket shaft nut, the chain adjuster nut, and the mainshaft nut and remove the engine sprocket, primary chain and clutch assembly all together.

Good Luck

How to adjust a 9460897 mtd snow blower auger clutch cable.

On the handle end (usually) of the cable is a curved metal connector. Attached to the connector is a threaded rod with a nut. Attach a pair of pliers to the threaded cylinder that the threaded rod goes into. Loosen the nut. Turn the threaded cylinder into the threaded rod to tighten or out to loosen. When you have the correct adjustment, tighten the nut back down onto the cylinder. To be correctly adjusted, pull the cover off the auger belt and push down on the handle. The spring attached to the cable at the pulley end should stretch out when the handle is fully depressed. Spring tension keeps the belt tight. iaff801.jpg

Loose slack in my clutch cable in my 08 buell blast

Your clutch needs to be adjusted. Before you adjust it at the lever you must adjust the clutch itself.

On the primary cover is the clutch inspection cover just behind the driver footpeg bracket. Unfortunately to get to it you must remove the Y-bracket and it's a PITA. The nuts that hold it are in a tight space under the seat just below the base of the fuel tank. Before you remove the bracket completely, just loosen the nuts as far as you can without removing them. You may have enough play to pull the bracket out of the way of the clutch inspection cover.

3 allen head screws hold the inspection cover in place. Be careful not to damage the paper gasket. You should be able to reuse it but to be safe, get yourself an extra before performing the adjustment. It's cheap insurance.

With the cover off you will be able to see the face of the clutch pack. In the center is a stamped steel nut held in place with a spring. It is a type of lock nut that will keep the clutch from readjusting itself. Simply pull this out (nut & spring) and set it aside.

In the center you will now see a shaft with a slot in it. This is where you will make the clutch adjustment. Using a regular screw driver simply turn the shaft clockwise until it firmly seats. Do not crank it down hard! Snug it down once, back it out a turn, then snug it down again. Once snugged down, back it out only 1/4 turn.

Replace the lock nut and spring being careful not to tighten or loosen the adjustment you made any more than needed to get the nut to seat inside the clutch. Once the cover is in place the spring will press against the lock nut keeping it secured.

Make sure where the gasket sits is clean before replacing the gasket and inspection cover. Do nut over tighten the 3 screws that hold the cover. It is only aluminum that they are threading into.

Replace/tighten the Y-bracket for the pegs back into place. If you do not have small hands it might be a good idea to have a small-handed person available to assist you in getting the nuts back on the bracket bolts and hand tightened as much as possible for you.

Now that the clutchis adjusted, you can make adjustments to the cable itself to get the free play out of the clutch lever. The cable adjustment is made at the adjuster located roughly halfway between the lever and the bottom of the bike. It's covered by a rubber boot that keeps out dirt and moisture. Carefully pull the boot to expose the adjustment nuts. The clutch lever is considered properly adjusted when there is 1mm of play between the lever and where it hits the stop near the pivot bolt.

It's really an easy job but don't try to adjust it only at the cable. Adjusting the clutch pack itself it really a breeze and even your shifting should be a little smoother. Good luck! =)
