There is a retaining clip that holds the plates in the basket. The assembly will need to be depressed in order to get the retainer in place. You can get a diagram, or at least view the diagram for the assembly at the parts counter of your local HD dealer. The local dealer here has stopped printing out the diagrams for me, but will still let me view them. Generally that's all you need anyway, just to get the idea.

My 1997 Audi a3 is juddering when I change gears and it's low revs

Hi Kristopher, A shudder from the manual transmission is usually caused from a defective part in the clutch assembly. It could be caused by uneven wear of the pressure plate (clutch cover) or wear on the clutch plate boss (The center of the clutch plate with the springs or rubbers which absorb the torque when releasing the pedal) A shudder can be generated from a defective engine or gear box mount, worn CV joints or spiders or a loose bell housing. Start with the last suggestion and work backwards as the clutch replacement will require the most work. If the clutch assembly has been replaced recently, and the parts available are of the same quality we receive where I am, you will need to do the job over. Regards John

How do I replace my clutch cable on a 98 dyna low rider

You will have to replace the entire cable. Also buy a transmission side cover gasket because you have to take the cover off to replace the cable.

2000 harley gets caught between gears, what's the problem?

Your low rider has forward controls on it. These controls are not as "positive" as the mid-mount controls. Now, if your clutch is not releasing as it should, this could be the cause of your missed shifts as well.

Or, it could simply be that you need to learn a different shifting technique. Regardless of what you and others may think, your low rider is not a high performance motorcycle. It's a cruiser and should be ridden like one. It has large heavy gears in the transmission because it's a large heavy motorcycle and it will not shift as fast as the lighter bike's transmissions do.

If your transmission does not shift as it should once you're sure your clutch is releasing properly, make sure your primary is not overfilled with oil. If you have too much oil in the primary, the clutch and the oil will act like the torque converter in an automatic transmission.

Stand your bike up straight and remove the derby cover. Look at the clutch assembly. It will look like shiney aluminum. Inside this, you'll see a darker colored "plate" of metal. This is the spring in your clutch. The oil level should be no higher than the lowest point of this spring.

If this does not resolve the problem with your transmission shifting, it will require going into the transmission to have a look at what's going on in there.

Good Luck

Just need to know how to change Engine, Transmission and Primary

There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the transmission. One is the engine oil and the other is the transmission. Drain the two oils from there. The primary oil drain is a small pipe plug underneath the lowest part of the primary drive cover.

The engine holds three quarts of oil, the transmission holds 20-24 ounces of oil, and the primary hold 36-42 ounces of oil. Fill the primary until the oil level is just to the bottom of the spring in the clutch assembly. If you get too much oil in the primary, the clutch will drag and you will be unable to find neutral with the engine running.

Good Luck

How to remove starter clutch on a 1998 Dyna Low Rider

The starter clutch is an integral part of the starter assembly itself. You must remove the starter and disassemble it to get the "overrunning clutch" out. First take the starter off the bike. Then, remove the two long bolts and take the starter motor off of the drive housing. Then remove the bolts that hold the drive housing together. The overrunning clutch will come out of the drive housing. You will probably have to take the bearings off the original clutch and reinstall them on the new part. Reassemble the starter and reinstall it on the bike.
