  • Machining inner clutch basket?

    Does anyone know if a slightly chewed up inner clutch basket can be machined?

    The final fibre plate which backs up to the clutch basket has lost its material and has gone metal-to-metal and the surface is now looking rather ordinary.

    Or am I up for a new clutch inner too?

    Just grab a second hand inner, i would not risk taking any material off it.

        Nope, wrong side of the engine. "Clutch Center" on page 9-18 in the workshop manual

        Taking a closer look, I've got metal shavings from the clutch in my crankcase and a siezed lifter bearing (possibly from the shavings).
        I think Dingo will be getting a visit tomorrow...

                    If you have to remove material to bet the surface but to normal, then why not add another friction plate?
                    You put the c*nt in country run

                        no I havn't, but I could imagine! :o... and I'm not familiar with these engines either..
                        but I'm guessing that you'd only have to take maximum .1mm off the face, and I'm also guessing its steel? it'd probly still be within factory spec!
                        I'd say it''d unlikely to explode! your not trying to lighten it...

                          Your right, but jonchilds has the worst of luck when it comes to bikes. if it was going to explode for anyone... it would be him.

                            have done it before on an F4i for UWA motorsport
                            not for weight saving but just to clean the face up. needed very little
                            hasnt exploded yet and those engines cop a fair beating

                            random money saving fact: to save yourself replacing the clutch nut you can skim a tad off the back (half the pitch of the thread for example) or stick a different thickness washer in there
                            assuming its the staked style nut
                            Respect is earned, not enforced.
