I bought this "fixer upper" to put nicely last summer from someone who had in my estimation just ridden the poor thing for the last 50000km without any major repairs or maintenances. The bike has 160000 miles on the odometer so i spent most of July and august fixing everything i could think of. I sacrificed most of the riding season just to have the bike in mostly working order and i must admit i like tinkering with the bike and learning bike maintenance along the way.
Then the clutch broke.
I was just about to leave the yard and suddenly i could not get the clutch to disengage.
I thought that great, now the clutch is totaled on top of everything else and bought new clutch set.
When i opened the clutch cover this is what i saw.
Sorry for the potato quality but you can see the issue, the outermost plate has somehow gotten out of the basket.
And here in the next picture you can see what it did to the clutch cover.
So can you help me with what on earth caused this and what do i need to do before i dare to start the engine.
I already replaced the clutch set and i was thinking if i should check the push rod and and cylinder.
The only thing i have done that relates to the clutch before this happened was that i replaced the clutch fluid.
