Here we go guys. the following pics will show how to install the STM slipperclutch on the 04-05 R1. there are exactly 70 (seventy) pics to show, so be patient first make sure the bike has cooled down and is on it's side-stand and NOT on a rear stand. we prefer this method since it allows the bike to tilt and help with the installation of the kit. Note that there is no need to empty the oil from the engine while doing this. We recommend that you have an extra clutch case gasket just in case the old one is in bad shape. Remove the lower and middle small platic cover of the right hand side of the bike. Remove the OEM metal clutch cover slider as shown in the pic. Remove the clutch cable from the hinge of the puller attached to the clutch cover.
Remove all bolts that hold the clutch cover onto the engine, and gently pull the case towards you. All the bolts are the same length so don't worry about which bolt goes where. Please note, that if you have a clutch slider insltalled, remove it to help get the case off the engine block easily.
this next step could be done differently but since we were in a hurry to get it done, we did the following. we layed the cover on a bench (you could get a small bowl to do this since it will be messy with the original case) and put the new Graves plates in it(the reason we rocommend the graves plates is cuz it eliminates the last thin fibre plate of the original pack plus the 2 metal aprings that you will see in the next few pics), and topped it with engine oil. since were going to change the oil of the bike anyway, we though we would use fresh oil.
You are now looking at what is responsibe of transfering the 180 ponies that your baby produces, to your rear wheel start removing the clutch fibres and metal plates. Don't rush remove them one by one. it may get a bit tricky, but am sure you will manage.
At some point, it will be difficult reaching all the way back to the remaining clutch fibres and metal plates. so what i do, is get a hold of two Pen magnets, to make my life easier and extract the remaining plates like so...
you will reach a point that you will see a very fine metal ring that holds the remaining components of the clutch in. Using a fine screw driver, try pushing the locking heads of the locking ring. from the inside out to release it.
