actually surprisingly easy Tony.
once the drive train is off, shock out, clutch slave off, throttle cables, a few electrical plugs... then the 4 bolts, and little wiggle an a jiggle and viola!
a cluttered garage!

course, I gotta get her back together later  Shocked



now to clean the inside of the clutch housing... What a Face

What is in there that is amiss? Just the clutch itself?

as posted somewhere? the clutch was letting go at speed, like when rolling on from 90kph or so in top gear. a few drips of oil appeared on the floor soon there after... wisdom told me there where a choice of 8 places in there that this oil -it was (is) engine oil - could come from (er. the engine  Rolling Eyes ) and the only way to find out/fix it was to....
so here we are:

these are the intermediate plate and the ring gear plate. the flywheel contact plate actually looks pretty good...

the welch plug at the top of the case appears to be the culprit at this point.

just need to pull the flywheel and have a better snoop around.


but its time for a cup of tea. Laughing

I've had enough fun for today, so more tomorrow.....

I clamped off the flywheel (with some specialised gear clamps...)

My GRiSO was picked up by my dealer today.
The pick-up service for a fair price is really a nice idea.
She will be rollerized soon.

I pushed the GRiSO out of the garage and give it a hit with the pressure washer. That mud from when it was towed was like concrete. Shocked


Then, I rode it. Yes. All of 3 metres back into the garage. That counts, doesn't it?


cheers

Even a 3m ride is a ride, albeit a short one.

I fixed the leak from the airbox drain today - new length of Silicon hose, attached to spigot, and a "spare" 6 mm allen head screw for a stopper. Found the old hose wrapped around the dogbone and spring - pretty sure it's past its use by date. Use a cable tie to keep the bottom end from straying too close the the exhaust. Winner.

Well, in that whole 3 metres, at a ludicrous 0.5km/h, there were no funny noises, and the engine didn't sieze or throw a rod, so there must be a little oil in there...

Took the CARC off pending Pete undertaking a refirb. Me thinks the bearings are shot. Drained the oil and a sliver of metal came out about 2 cms long and 5mm wide-yish!

It's part of the cage of the big bearing, seen that plenty of times before. Hopefully it won't of fed too much shite through the rest of the assembly. Biggest thing will be getting all the bits out of the bridge, crownwheel and pinion assembly. Be interesting to see if it's an early one that was never recalled.
