Had a weird thing happen on my Utah ride a few days ago. Was pulling into camp and it was a bit softer than it looked so I ended up tipping over on the left side. No biggie. Picked it up only to find that my clutch lever was completely loose like the cable had broken, only the cable was fine. The actuating arm on the release lever (the part inside the clutch cover) turned completely freely with the only resistance coming from the return spring. With the engine running it would just rev and rev with no power going to the wheel (I have a rekluse btw). Laid the bike on its right side the following morning and removed the cover. Was a real bitch to get off even after I broke the initial seal. Had to wiggle and pull for several minutes before it finally came loose. Found the release bearing rotated about 45 degrees off vertical (which is where it should be to mate with the assembly inside the cover. Hoping that was the issue I rotated back and reassembled. Again it was a real bitch to get the cover back on. Worked perfect so I loaded all my gear back on the bike. Soon as I went to restart I found that 3/4 of the clutch was freeplay again, and no movement with the engine running in gear. However if I brought the revs up to about 2k and feathered the clutch right in that last 1/4 pull then it would give me a CLUNK! and I'd be back in business with the clutch lever acting completely normal. Got myself 750 miles home from there since it worked fine except at low speed if I used the clutch lever or when I stopped the engine. If I left the clutch lever alone and let the Rekluse do its job it gave me no problems at all. Never had the 800's clutch apart before so the design is a bit odd compared to other bikes I've wrenched on. I'm thinking either the release bearing is bent, something in the cover is bent, or maybe the grooved bearing or needle bearings on the release lever have some freeplay? Seems logical anyway. Anyone ever had this sort of thing happen? Just seems really strange that it would manifest after such a minor tip over on soft sand.
