Clutches

Well not entirely new I was Braindead before. but forgot my login and well its time to move on.

Can any one tell me which clutch to buy and where to buy it for my 89 851? Its got a screcher trapped in the workings at present and I think I neew some new plates. Any other advice on looking after it fire away.

A good strip and clean every year works wonders. If your not proficient in the mechanical dept yourself, a decent independent will do it for 20 (takes them minutes), and youll notice the world of difference.

You may have done this, but put some spacers between the clutch cover and casing as this helps expel dust etc..thus getting rid of mr screechy !!!!

Hope that helps.....incidentally my 888 has just come back from service and the clutch is on its last legs. I am told a genuine duacti one fitted is around 300(or 700 for a bucci slipper clutch..yum yum !!)

Cheers
Nat

If you are just looking to replace the stack of discs then parts are probably 100 plus 30 mins easy work - definitely DIY.
I would take it apart anyway - very easy and have a look for yourself to see what has worn - stick it back together as it came out and you'll be no worse off than you started.
SP clutches are around 160 I think for the disk stack.
How rattly is it?

Not excessivley bad, but the guy was explaining about the problem. I cant remember exactly what he said but I seemed to remember him saying something about the casing being loose, and previous dealers bodging it together with shims..

As youll see..im a bit of a muppet when it comes to mechanics!!

He said they ahd put another shim on it (it now has 3?!) and it may last the summer though..

Oh and BTW I seem to remember that certain models have different no.s of plates, so I guess your mech might be comparing your clutch to a 9** and be a little confused.
I reckon Paul Payne should know a thing or two about these as he bought an 851 clutch disc set off me a few years back.
