Clutch removal/inspection




Checked discs on my surface plate, all within spec



Specs on the fiber discs are 2.7-3.0mm. All within spec too, this is a typical reading taking several measurements in different areas of the discs. Typical measurements ranged from 2.8's to 3.0 mm

Stator cleaned up nice, now I can see the timing marks...




Clutch and flywheel are reinstalled along with new seals & gaskets. Only a couple of hiccups along the way, I rolled the lips on two seals and had to reorder them and re-install, and the countershaft gear would not remove easily but some gentle nudging got that solved.

Getting closer... I'm still waiting for a break in the weather to get the frame painted, then I can get some assembly started.

I was cleaning up the area around the bench where I was working on the bottom end and found this...



:Ugh

Ten guesses what it is. Hint, it's an aprox 4mm ball. And my bottom end is all buttoned up...

i recently had a similar pucker up moment when I found a small ball bearing on the floor where I was working on my engine. It turned out that the wheels on my roll around shop stool have seen better days. The swivel casters had very few bearings left in the cups.

"The Ball with the Push Rod" is sorta like "The Lime in the Coconut".

You put the lime in the coconut, you drink them both up.
You put the ball with the push rod, then you button it up.

Sorry....it's no fun pulling it back apart.

Clutch actuator ball installed...

Also, got some more parts trickling in. Latest batch is from Motoduro in the UK

New re-pop air filter cage to go with my Uni Filter




Air filter that came with the bike





It's a bonded 1 piece unit. At first I thought it was an older Uni Filter but I found that Yamaha offered two air-filter options on some bikes back in the day, a two piece and a one piece


It may not look like it in the pic, but the Uni Filter is much larger than the other one. Practically fills the whole air-box cavity



BTW, I can whole heartedly recommend MotoDuro as a business. Great communication, easy ordering, and fast shipping. Matter of fact, I placed an order with a well known U.S. vendor the day before the MD order and it's still not here. Motoduro is GTG as far as I'm concerned. Great resource for vintage IT parts.

Thank you for the MotoDuro recommendation! Never heard of them. Always nice to learn about good places to shop for parts!
