Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

gears not in alignment was created by maxx2395

HI All
I am frustrated, the drive gear on the crankshaft
does not look like it matches the driven gear on the 
clutch hub The drive gear is installed correct because
the position of the nut. the driven gear is about
one eight of an inch out.
If anybody knows if this correct or if I need to take it apart 
again.  I am using the CMSNL website to assemble it.
Thanks for your time

Are we talking about a kawasaki Z900 or a Yamaha V Max?

We love pics of course, but i don't think they ever line up perfectly central to each other. So long as the clutch has any washers that are meant to be behind it--in place there's nothing else i can think of just yet. Are there signs of part of the crank gear never having been turned against during its life.

Didn't you just post this same question yesterday in a different post?  Answers were given there. And a request for photo. It's going to be really hard for us and you to follow along if you keep doing that.

Still no photo? If you want to get some help on this issue, you've really got to post detailed photos, and details of your bike. I can't remember what mine looked like, but if you're only talking about 1/8" off, that might be completely normal. When helical gears engage, they tend to move a bit laterally anyway, so may actually be in line when they are under load  But again, a few good pictures would be worth a million words.

You're good.  Some people have come on here and posted similar/same question and updates in a new topic every time.  They miss half the replies.  And nobody can follow along.  It's very confusing. 

Just make sure you check the last few of your disc thread I linked to and then continue here is probably best?   I think I can close that other one if you want me to so people can't add posts there.

HI
So I couldnt see any wear marks on the gears, does not have many miles on it. 
So I took the clutch back apart, the sleeve the bearing and the shim
are correctly installed. so I put it all back together, after falling down on the
cement in my garage OWUUUUUCH. and It is correct. going to take me a while to stop hurting. 
I thank everyone for the quick response. Hope all of you have a great ride.

 I just rebuilt my RT3 engine and found out if the clutch thrust bearing and thrust washers are not installed correctly it will cause the driven grear to be misaligned to the primary crankshaft gear and it WILL CAUSE PROBLEMS if you do not fix it. There are diagrams in the Yamaha manual showing how to install them correctly.
