    I believe all you would need to change clutch parts is a pilot tool for about five bucks.

    There is a splined centering plug that is needed to align the plates.When I did mine,took the motor to a shop and they lined things up. The trans slipped right in then.

    Thanks guys,

    I believe these are the same thing (referring to the pics I posted). I guess you can buy a fancy one for $68 or try and make my own. I read all the big twins share the same parts for over 40 years (that's quite nice of them). I guess I'll order the parts and take a trip to the hardware store. Should be interesting tearing it all apart. Screenshot_20190928-114737_Chrome.png

    So I've put ~1000 miles on my new to me Quota now. What a wonderful motorcycle! A bit strange that I like it better than my Racer or my Griso!

    At first I was all worried about everything ... then I gave up the worrying and have just been riding. Yes it leaks a bit of oil. And I have no idea if all the venting hose stuff is dumping rust into my engine. And I can't reset my trip meter. One day I'll get back to all that. :-)

    The new Avon tires have been great. I bought a Hepco & Becker top case for it ... then found out the stock Quota rack is not a Hepco & Becker compatible rack ... then ordered an adapter plate ... so now I have mounted up. Oh, and new grips.

    So I'm about ready to try a multi day trip on the Q ... gotta wait for the Northern CA weather conditions to get better and then head out. Might go the SLO direction.
