Question about Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, there is no torque value for the nuts because they are clamping on studs, the bible just says tighten securely but if you use locknuts and blue lock tite you will be fine. If you are a torque wrench addict like me 100 inch pounds would be safe. Now before you do your lock tite measure the distance between the releasing disc and the outer drive plate it should be .125" if it's more than .165" parts sells .040" shorter spacers, if it's .205 they sell .080" shorter spacers. Anything over that and you need to replace your friction plates. The standard length spacer is 1.530" Good luck

To get the clutch plates out of the Sportster clutch assembly, you do not have the take the nut off. But, to answer that question, the nut has left handed threads on it. To change the clutch plates, you must have a special tool to compress the clutch spring so that you can get the lock ring off the inner clutch hub so you can remove the spring and the plates. The tool is available from JP Cycles for about $50. There is a "lockring seat" just behind the lockring. Make sure you look at the direction this ring faces before you remove it.
