has anyone out there changed the clutch plates and springs? i know its a long shot because most bikes wont have needed to be changed but if anyone out there has. how hard was it to do?

was going to have a quick look at it when changing the oil but the outer casings stuck on pretty tight :/

basically when i did the r6 lever mod, i didnt adjust the cable properly so the clutch was slipping really bad and because ive got castrol fully synth power 1 racing (me thinking the better the oil is best) its making things alot worse for clutch friction, will be going down to the castrol semi synth because i know thatll help but want to change the clutch plates and have 10% stronger springs which should stop all that slipping :)

rating out of 10 to do would be nice, im not a mechanic but have an engineering sort of back ground so should be able to do it just want to know how hard it is before hand :p

Does this match up with the manual?
Looks like a pretty easy job in my opinion!


If you DO do it, RECORD IT, or TAKE PICTURES!!!
Someone can then make a how to :p

Clutch cover gasket, straight forward enough to remove, just need to follow the torque order for the bolts so the gasket is snugged home correctly. As for taking the clutch apart not a problem, when installing new clutch friction plates in a wet clutch soak them in oil over night. The rest of it is pretty straight forward and covered easily in the workshop manual from Yamaha. Didn't use a clutch basket holding tool, but I was using an impact gun to buzz things undone. Then putting the bike in gear with the brake applied with a zip tie on the lever so I could torque bits up.
