175 CT1 clutch again was created by mkparker

Ok, I've read all the clutch posts I can find, but I'm not finding the answer I need. Yes, I'm a newbie bike "mechanic".

I bought the bike from a guy that tore it down to put in crankcase seals and then lost interest. I've finished with the seals and I'm putting everything back together without having previously seen one together.

The springs and clutch discs are at or just past the lower end of their minimum specs. The guy said he was riding it just fine before disassembly. I'll probably buy a clutch kit anyway, but I wanted to make sure I was thinking correctly and hopefully have it together correctly.

I tried attaching a video,but no luck. Pic shows what's turns easily.

No luck with a pic either!?

I can turn the inner clutch basket easily. The clutch lever and it's associated parts seem to be working fine. The clutch disengages using the lever, but I would think it shouldn't turn easily when it's engaged.

Welcome. On the face of it, it reads like 'you're onto it' so i'd just carry on with the original plates & see how it goes. If the rubber-plastic spreader rings are there then 'bin' them as don't do anything useful. Here's a link that might be useful.Page 46 47 etc. Thrust bearing mentioned there in the exploded view is a one piece flat bearing & the thin washer goes against the rollers on the side you can see the rollers in the drawing. Thick washer goes where shown, called thrust plate. They don't show the thin one but it comes with the bearing & is part of it.

For video, you'll need to upload it to youtube and post the link.

Thanks for the replies guys! This is the part that finally sunk in! 

 "They don't show the thin one but it comes with the bearing & is part of it."

I'd left off the thicker thrust washer.
