PostSubject: hand made clutch tool   Sun Aug 28, 2011 12:02 pm

A few years ago I read someone's article about making a tool made out of a piece of wood and two bolts that were to be placed into the clutch area and it would hold it so you could remove or install the large nut, and be able to replace the pins or sliders and belt. Any one help me with this?

Goodness, you made my day. Glad that was it. My Silver Wing's odo is roughly 14,500 miles, so belt replacement time will soon arrive.

Very true, well spotted!!! But, actually, you can change the clutch without a puller.

Do you know something the service manual doesn't?


Actually, all you have to do to remove the driven pulley / clutch is to lock up the rear brake while you loosen the 22 mm hub nut.

It's only torqued to 45 lbs ft, so it's not at all difficult.

No special tools needed.

I used a short piece of left over oak hardwood flooring to make the same variator tool noted above.

bigbird, when I undid the main nut with an air wrench (with the handbrake on and a cable tie on the rear brake lever) the clutch came off quite easily, with just a little help from 2 broad blade screwdrivers to lever behind. I only attempted it because I had a 2/3 leg puller but it wouldn't fit, so I tried to ease it off with the screwdrivers and it came off without much effort. As my bike is 2001, I expected it to be a real problem, so hopefully they are all that easy?

Excuse if this is a daft question....
Nearing the mileage where I will renew the drive belt so about to make myself a tool as covered  above.(thanks to the member who posted)
Now did I read someplace that the "nut" I need to remove requires to be turned in the "wrong/other" direction?...ie get it off by turning it to the right?...or is first stage senility setting in.
...would rather ask a "daft" question than end up over tightening a nut and damaging the thread...Already over tightened and sheared off one of the 5 bolts holding the casing on ... leaving me with a problem...
Thanks for any advice...

I have not yet run across a reverse threaded bolt on a Silverwing, and I've removed both pulleys and replaced the clutch.
