    This is what I have done too. My problem is getting the clutch cover back on again. I am having a lot of trouble with the plunger that activates the clutch. It is not "solid" in the centre of the assembly and as I put the cover on it simply pops back towards the engine and is "floppy"

    How do I replace the clutch cover please?

    Am I stupid or drunk or just misreading the infos, but, 10 Nm for the screws that hold the pressure plate seem to me a very excessive force on thoses small screws. I'm saying cause I got the crankcase open to take a look at the frictions disks and now I need to re-assemble the clutch, I'm confused about the torque force to be applied!?!? I wouldn't like to break the thread or anything worst.

    BTW, can someone tell me (to probably get me more confused) the torque force on the screws that hold the crankcase cover.

    P.S. new owner of a 2009 f800gs and first post ever

    thanks

    (Yep, my mistake. My torque wrench is foot pounds an da.Nm (not only Nm) Da. Nm was giving me 10 times the force I should use. Good thing that I was questionning myself before torquening thoses screws!:
