Clutch Chudder/Rebuild important info...and FYI
I just ordered replaced my clutch basket on my 03 Vee. Turns out the basket that was in there was already "new style". The spring slop was the same as the brand new one which initially was very disappointing until I noticed that the clutch plates were not stacked correctly by the PO. Had to driven plates together in the number 2 position. Since I had it open, I thought I'd install the new one anyway. That said, if anyone desires a "new and improved" clutch basket that looks to be in fine shape cheap...say $90 shipped to your door, lemme know.
Another important note, the new roller bearing and cage has 2 needle bearings missing across from each other, it's supposed to be that way. I read where someone thought it was a faulty part, but after a call to Oneida they said this is an improved design. (Oil galleries).
