that weird gear like assembly is what the rod actuates to operate the clutch. You will have to line it up with the rod in the cover witch has a gear on it that meshes with the gear like rod. The fun is lineing it up and getting it to the proper setting. Nothing is wrong.:hellobyePariah said:Hey guys, just removed clutch cover and while I was holding the linkage to remove the clutch cable suddenly I felt a huge tension release. I finished unbolting the cover and slid it off only to reveal a weird gear type bolt sticking out from the center of the clutch assembly, it just kind of dangles there.... I am getting a new cover tomorrow but I wanted to tear it down to see what I was getting into. When I tried to put the bent cover back on I could never really get that tension back in the linkage. Granted I didnt fully install it but I am sure that the gears were meshing. DId I do something wrong? Hope I explained this good enough, any help is appreciated. Oh, and it's an 04 R1.
