Thanks for the suggestion. Do I have to use their flush-mounts or is the stem style one okay/small enough?

Personally, I got the flush mounts, and have not had to think about them in about 2-3yrs. After having maybe as many as 10 OEMs replaced under warranty. At first I was hung up on the size, wanting the larger oem style for best visibility, but after installing the flush mounts, they are VERY bright, and as long as you just do the rears, and don't use the new module (only neccessary if you do the fronts too AFAIK), the interval at which they flash is a little quicker, and attracts attention in and of itself. ...If that makes sense.

Makes perfect sense, thanks.

***Edit... Sory, clicked the wrong thread.
Ugh! Coulda had the clutch pick up a loose bit of a bolt or bearing and drag it up there causing that too. Does it go all the way around the back of the cover too? Hopefully it is just a piece of the clutch but I'd think it came from somewhere else. I had a Husky decomp lever come off the cam and do similar damage inside the case cover, same circular ring scar. Good luck!

After taking the cover off, I can move the basket up and down by hand about a 1/4". The damage to the cover was almost certainly from wobbling of the basket.

When I had the dealer do the head gasket last time, the bike became hard to start. I had to "bump" the starter button once or twice to get her to turn over properly. I always suspected the decomp lever was not reinstalled correctly, especially after having the same problem with a new battery..

Youch! How many miles on it?

My decomp pieces actually made it to the clutch basket and spun around for a bit doing their damage.

It looks like any other bike clutch on the parts fiche, you should be able to remove the bolts evenly releasing the pressure slowly and pull the bolts, springs and pressure plate out. Flatten the lock washer tab and remove the center nut with an impact gun or get/make the special clutch holding tool. The basket should slip off then. Obviously keep the parts for the pushrod and the plates in order and watch how the interface with the basket.

Nothing like a car.

Edit, are there 4 external (common) bolts/springs and another set internally? I'd think the common process still applies, remove all the bolts/nuts equally so the pressure is released evenly. If you leave one tight it will strain that stud/basket mount. I'm sure someone will correct me if there is a different step on this clutch.

Good luck!

Thanks for the advice Navin. If I'd have realized that I did not need the special tools that the manual refers to, I'd have some more carnage pics for you guys already.

nice video! I liked it except I usually like to hear at least some of the bike even under the music. Good job though. Is that the Go Pro wifi remote on your handlebars? That's exactly what I was thinking of doing.
