Removing clutch cover questions.
How to adjust the clutch is well covered on other threads in this forum once the clutch cover is removed. The manual directs you to clutch removal instructions for how to take the cover off. My question is do you have to do all of the following to take the cover off if you're not removing the clutch?
remove rear brake light switch
remove front footrest bracket
disconnect the four hoses going into the cover
It's clear that the oil must be drained before removing the cover. The scheduled maintenance calls for the clutch cable play to be inspected every 3500 miles and the coolant replaced after 14500 miles. If the coolant has to be drained do you reuse it? Can the 7 bolts be removed without taking the brake light switch and footrest bracket off? Am I reading the manual correctly that the cover should be removed at each scheduled service.
