What has to be removed to get to the clutch

The transmission has to be removed. If it's a frobnt wheel drive car, the front axles have to be removed in order to remove the transmission.

The flywheel should be removed, too, and machined flat by an automotive machine shop. With the flywheel removed you may wish to replace the engine's rear main seal since it may leak oil.

The clutch often comes in a "key", which includes a new clutch pressure plate, clutch disk, and a "throw-out bearing" (used by the clutch fork to disengage the clutch). The kit may alos include a broze "pilot bearing", which is used to center the transmission's input shaft inot the engine crack shaft. The kit will include a placstic alignment tool to help the clutch disk while the new pressure plate is attached to the flywheel.

I can kick start my 1979 rm80 suzuki but when I go to shift gears it kicks out and stops running what could be wrong with it?

Hey Michelle,,
This is something that will have to be looked into.. Sounds like the clutch may not be working.. it won't engage/disengage..(the clutch plates are stuck together - a common thing when older bikes sit for a while!!).. this will require the right side cover to be removed, the clutch cover plate removed, the clutch plates(fiber and metal) to be removed, then cleaned, oiled and everything re-installed in reverse order..with a new side cover gasket..

You MIGHT be able to put the bike in gear.. then try to push it (engine not running) with the clutch lever pulled in and get the clutch plates to break loose (seen this work a couple times)..
You SHOULD be able to push the bike(engine not running) in gear with the clutch lever pulled in!!!

Please rate as helpful.. thanks!

How to install a reduced effort clutch kit

Most of the "EZ clutch kits" that I've seen simply replace the release mechanism that is in the clutch release cover on the transmission.

You must drain the transmisson lube and remove whatever you need to remove to gain acess to the clutch release mechansm cover on the right hand side of the transmission. Remove the transmission filler plug and dip stick. Remove all the bolts that hold the cover on the transmission. Remove the cover.

Now, disconnect the clutch cable and screw it out of the cover. Remove the snap ring from the inner ramp and remove it. Make sure you keep up with the three large ball bearings. If you're replacement part comes with the outer ramp, remove the large snap ring and replace that ramp as well. Notice the position of the large snap ring and the tang of the outer ramp before you take it out. Put it back in the same position. Apply a thick grease to the ball bearings and "stick" them into their slots on the outer ramp. Install your new inner ramp and snap ring.

The rest of the reassembly is simply the reverse of the disassembly. Refill the transmission with 20-24 ounces of H-D Syn3 20W50 engine oil or equilivant. Torque the cover bolts to 10-13 foot pounds. Adjust the cable at the adjuster near the left downtube of the frame so that you have about an eighth of an inch of freeplay at the lever.

Good Luck

Cluth is sliping on my bike when u give it gas is there a way to adgust it so it dosent slip

If there's any adjust ment left, you can adjust down where it attaches at the cluch lever on the right side of you bike using a wrench, but if the cable is already at the max, then you'll need a new clutch kit which is relatively easy to do with some basic hand tools. Loosen your clutch cover bolts and remove the cover then remove the clutch basket and reinstall new friction disc's and clutch plates in exact same order as old one sit's in there. Then fill'er back up with some fresh oil and adjust it out. Be sure to leave a little free play at the lever. Good luck.

Just changed my gear box oil on my aprilia rs 125 2000 model and my clutch is sleeping how do i fix this and how much will it cocst thanks josh

i sure hope you didn't use car oil but bought motorcycle oil. The clutch is a wet-type system that uses engine oil to keep it cool. Motorcycle oil is formulated differently than car oil, which has detergents in it to add lubrication and engine life that will cause a motorcycle's clutch to slip. A new clutch is both inexpensive and easy to replace. When you buy a new clutch, don't forget the clutch cover gasket. i recommend EBC clutches.
1. Set up a little pan with MOTORCYCLE oil in it and place the new clutch discs and pressure plates in it so that they get well-covered with clean oil.
2. Drain the oil, remove the clutch cover and remove the bolts on the cover of the clutch basket.
3. Remove the old clutch parts and make sure you pay attention to what the last part is (disc or pressure plate).
4. Install the new clutch, starting with the last part you removed and alternate between the discs and pressure plates until you run out.
5. Reinstall the clutch basket's cover plate and re-torque the bolts to the specified setting, using a cross-sequence like you would on a wheel.
6. Clean all the old gasket off, install the clutch cove and new gasket and fill up your engine with oil.
7. Ride away happy because you just changed your first clutch!

Hope this helps,

Replaced the clutch in my xlh1200 1995 with a kevlar clutch kit. when I put it back together I couldnt squeeze the clutch. I took off the derby cover and figured out that the adjustment screw was hitt

I would go back to scratch. Disassemble the clutch basket and reassemble it making sure you have it set in proper order. Then reassemble every thing. Also double check the clutches you bought are the proper ones for your bike.
