TrophyHunter's advice should be gospel with regards to the NSU fix debate on clutch removal. He helped me do my DR and I had never seen a clutch in my life, let alone my new bike dismembered before my eyes. Thanks again for the help and mechanical lesson. I still know what a banjo bolt is, lol. If I was to do it again, I'd be taking the clutch off because it's simple to do and the correct procedure.
