Buy a clutch cover gasket. Take clutch cover off, remove 5 bolts and pressure plate, pull each plate out one at a time keeping them in order, replace with new plates, new plates go in same order. Soak the new plates in oil overnight before installing. Clean gasket surfaces completley.

1981 Yamaha xj550 maxim.anyone have a diagram of the correct order of the metal and fiber clutch plates so I can put back together correctly?


Hi Kevin:

If it's anything like the clutches I've messed with, there will only be 2 kinds of plates, metal, and fiber.
If you stack them up, alternating fiber/metal/fiber/metal until you run out, you'll probably end up with a fiber on top.
It will be like a "Dagwood Sandwich" with fiber on both outsides.
This will be the "clutch pack" that you install in the bike.

Hope this helps. It's great weather so you should be out riding.

I need a service manual for a 1981 Yamaha maxim 550


Hi, Anonymous the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 sometimes more and there is a handful of obscure, rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer or never were available, then there is eBay where you may be able to find what you need at a very high price because of its age and rarity. Most of the "FREE" manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manual please click on the links below. Good luck and have a nice day.
