Clutch Centre Nut & Washer Replacement
« on: January 26, 2017, 05:31:31 PM »
I'm about to order the parts I need to re-install the clutch basket but can't quite figure out what parts need or may need replacing.
The manual only mentions replacing the Belleville washer and re-using the nut but I'm sure I'll need a new nut if the original has already been staked?

Can anyone clarify?
Also, is the Belleville washer part number 24 on this drawing? it's not clear

Well, whilst not having done a T800 clutch - personally - I have seen many a clutch innards.
So, yes.
By no other reasoning than part# 24 costs 2 ~ 3 times more than part# 25 (as well a dome-shaped Bellville washer should -- over a common 22x34 flat washer).

Well, you probably wouldn't be the first one to re-use a clutch nut?
If the manual doesn't say "replace"? -- then it's a judgement call. It's only money, after all -- and, the nut costs less than that fancy washer...  :033:

I re-used my nut only because the dealer hadn't previously staked it when doing the return spring bulletin.  So I have a nut ready and waiting.

Thanks for the info

Yeah, I've re-used clutch centre nuts in the past, it was just that I hadn't actually laid eyes on the Tiger one (& the manual not mentioning re-using it) so wondered if it was any different

cheers
