Gatdammit - much like kuksul I experience some drive line friction when cold, but nothing abnormal. This is a natural consequence of how the clutch is designed. My changes are generally smooth, but I do have a decent clunk going into first from neutral (this is normal). I suspect your difficult shifts are more a result of soft shoes than anything I always use riding boots and have no issues I used the stock clutch play settings and am happy with how it feels.

I don't think I've ever ridden a bike that didn't make a thunk when engaging first at a standstill. Definitely a lot of drag if the bike is in gear with just the clutch pulled in, I've taken the advice on this forum to put it in neutral for starts to put less load on the starter.

I have started noticing that 2nd sometimes feels "mushy" for lack of a better descriptor, it goes into gear fine, but not with the positive click I'm used to. This very well could be wear I have caused as I have my issues timing clutch and shifting in second at times resulting in a hard shift or a miss shift but this hasn't been an issue on previous bikes. Of course, previous bikes have been Hondas which are relatively bomb proof.

To get a cleaner, more positive shift from 1st to 2nd, try pre-loading the shift lever before shifting ... that is ... put some pressure (not too much) on the lever before actually shifting.

This takes up any slack or slop, then, when ready to shift, pull in clutch click up to 2nd. The pre-loading may help with the mushy-ness.

I'll give that a shot, I'm not as concerned about the feel, mostly worried my shifts might be a little, ahem, indelicate for such a refined italian gearbox :-)

Just ordered the full kit but will have to wait until the current wood project in my shop is finished before i can move the HS in. A lot of vacuuming has to happen! My riding season is done so there's no rush, and besides, ski season is just around the corner!

cheers
Colin

I received my kit last Friday (11/10). No time/energy to deal with it now.

I'd love for one of our Bay Area experts to run a "clutch clinic day" to do the install.

Anyone know what the purpose of the little washers in the kit? I think they are
Aluminum?

Do you guys recommend measuring Clutch Spring length when things are apart?
When clutch springs get HOT they SHRINK. Seen this on two Suzuki's. Spring length shrank by 1/2". new ones made night and day difference.

Thoughts?

A few comments

I'm 3/4 of the way done with the installation, and wanted to point out a couple of things.

There is very little clearance for pulling the cam belt cover fastener behind the exhaust. I have a gunsmith ratchet driver that takes an allen bit about 1/2" long, that helped. I'm at a loss for why the belt cover needed to be removed, there is a third tab on the clutch cover that is under it so it looks intentional. Strange design.

When I got to the "the clutch pack should slide right out" step it refused to cooperate. Turned out that I still had the rear wheel on the stand from when I removed the big nut, still in gear, which bound the stack up. Raising the wheel to free it all did the trick.

I'm ready to install the cover, should be smooth sailing from here.

BTW when I checked the cam belt it seemed plenty tight. 10K miles, but I don't use much revs. And I think those washers are for sealing the oil strainer.

Finally, I noticed a logo on the tabs of the friction plate that I removed... same name as on the boxes the kit came in...truly OEM.
