Re: Clutch rod plunger and associated removal

Subsnowden - use search on Hammering n Wrenching for the clutch throwout bearing. The regular SKF one is way expensive, but there are substitutes if you want to go for them. One of them is a readily-available Harley one. Putting the rod back in, I've found the best trick is one BillyG posted on myu...

Re: Clutch rod plunger and associated removal

So this accounts for its recalcitrance to come free? I.e. jammed up with crud... That coupled with the back end of the plunger being crushed together with what was left of my thrust bearing and generating tons of heat caused the plunger to be mushroomed a bit there requiring some gentle persuasion ...

Re: Clutch rod plunger and associated removal

Wow, while the old plastic-retained thrust bearings were prone to failure, this is the first time I've heard of such a failure on one of the new all-steel versions! I saw another failed one on here somewhere but I think he has a few bearings remaining still in spherical configuration as opposed to ...

Thrust bearing; no bearings to speak of.
Could you elaborate on what you mean by this?
The ball bearings disintegrated who knows how long ago. Therefore the screw head and bearing retainer washers of my thrust bearing became my bearing along with the back of the clutch arm plunger.

Re: heated grips

If you ride in cold weather then the answer is YES!!!!! I just installed the bike master heated grips and install wasn’t bad but the grips are a little short. From what I understand the oxfords are longer. I only got to appreciate them for a couple days before catastrophe struck but otherwise I can’...

Re: O2 sensor replacement

I noticed the newer Urals have the O2 sensors much closer to the engine. Did they find that location to be better somehow?

Dare I ask what prompted you to do this, or is it too bleedin' obvious (no clutch action or tight as buggery)

Re: Clutch rod plunger and associated removal

Vice grips and cussing did the trick. Had to use the clutch rod to pound out the plunger then another rod on top of the clutch rod to get the plunger completely out. Thrust bearing; no bearings to speak of. Can I set it on fire now?

Re: Clutch rod plunger and associated removal

Well gave up. Removed swingarm. Got a better grip. Blood everywhere. Plunger still installed. Removed the tranny (after finding that sneaky forward right side bolt) and it appears I have the issue someone else did where my rod is stuck in the clutch end and does not want to move back. Gotta go read ...
