ok so my girl has been getting excessively noisy in the clutch area and after another post here i decide dto take mine apart and check it out and found something interesting and cant figure out if it was like that or if it was caused the back and forth torquing of the clutcvh drum and maybe the slipper so here goes


first thing i found was that without even removing hte pressure plate or anything, was that tthe clutch drum had A good bit of play in all directions as indicated by the arrows, so i may need to replave the race and needle bearing shown in the pic here



the next thing i noticed after i pulled out the discs and steels which are absolutely perfect in every way even after 21k miles---- the clutch drum has these springs like a pressure plate for drivetrain shock im sure, indicated by the yellow arrows and the arrows also show the springs inside these cavities are slapping side to side (as shown by the blue arrows) only the yellow one to the left is actually making contact with both sides and not rattling

the noise im haring is surely these springs rattling like crazy in these pockets, hell it sounds like a tamborene when i shake it. my question is------ is this normal or am i replacing bearing,race,and clutch basket ,,, i think i already know the answer

yes on springs in basket... thats normal.. suppose to take shock out of motor and tranny. outer gear on clutch basket is always turning with crank. when u put bike in gear, the output shaft is stopped. basically one shaft is turning and other is not, springs are suppose to help there. i have bought brand new ones... and they do same thing. now i would replace roller bearing in question. but alot of noise from clutch comes from those damper springs. unless basket is damaged, i wouldnt replace it. but thats just me. if it bothers u, get new one and then dont worry about it.
