Hi Yamagurus
It's probably been asked a thousand times, but please bear with a newbie. I've had clutch slip on the '68 DT1 and decided after reading lots of posts to go for a Barnett clutch plate replacement kit. Anyway received the Kit and NOS stock springs but I have a few questions.

Firstly, the 6off rubber cushions(O rings) do we keep them in, as they appear to make the clutch plates a bit too thick?

Secondly, I don't seem to have much plate seperation, and can't seem to get a free clutch.

I don't want to put it all back together with a new gasket to have to take it apart again.
Thanks as always
Ray

I have Barnetts in three of my Yamahas including my 68 DT1. You don't use the O rings and you definitely have them installed wrong. Sorry, but you are going to have to go back in!

Did you get the clutch set with the additional friction plate? Did you remover the thick spacer from the back of the clutch basket?

I think they are talking about a different bike. The bike that you’re talking about and you are correct is the 1974 DT 360

Since the first reply from RTD2 about the rubber rings and I removed them it appears to be OK, I have left the thick plate in, and yes I received 7 steel and 6 friction plates.

Yes, if you had the orings installed, it would not have worked. Great to hear.
