Thanks for the post. Picture threads are awesome. It's now in the FAQs.[thumbsup] Check it out.


P.S. Are those pictures hosted in a location where they are permanent? I don't want them to disappear after a while since the thread is linked to the FAQs. If they're not, can you upload them to the DML and then link to them? Thanks.

I couldn't see an alignment mark on the DP plate, didn't notice one on the SpeedyMoto plate I just installed. My first ride with the new plate and cover today resulted in the pressure plate failing to clamp after 15 miles or so. Started out as a gradual vague engagement and progressed to no clutch at all, but the lever feel remained constant.

I pulled the clutch apart and inspected the plate stack, pressure plate, springs, push-rod to bearing contact, etc. Only thing I could assess was there wasn't satisfactory grease in the push-rod to pressure plate bearing area and the gradual build up of heat and possible tighter clearance with the new PP bearing cause the plate to hang on the push-rod. Cleaned things off and applied some high temp/pressure grease and everything seems fine.

Clutch now holds 5th gear full-throttle run and quick short-shift 1-2-3 gear acceleration runs, and engagement smoothed out.
(This is my first Duc so I'm not in tune with the politically correct wrenching procedure yet)
Could I have missed an alignment procedure?

I might suggest adding application of a small amount of quality hi-temp grease to that connection in your excellent post.

Hello!

Yes the DP plate have a mark to alignment procedure!!!

It´s kind hard to see it but...

It´s a litle dot :



I didn´t put any grease in it(mine allready have), it was just a 15min operation. [thumbsup]

Cheers, Pedro Saro

The Speedymoto plate does have a mark, it's a small line on one of the holes. In this picture it's at 11 o'clock.

It appears you found it, but I thought I'd post this anyway for the rest.

What exactly are you aligning and what's the possible effects of mis-aligning?
Yo can try but.... It will not fit at all !!!!
You can´t really install a new pressure plate without aligning it with the right spot!!!! ;)

The marks align the spline teeth for boss to hole concentricity. One aligned position is concentric, the other 5 are not. There may be one unaligned position which is vary close but non-concentric which will allow you to assemble, but the springs will bind. Be careful and make sure the marks/splines align properly. No not over torque the socket head cap screws, use a torque wrench and specified torque value.

BTW, aside from torqueing it to spec, did you need to use blue locktite?

Thanks and great pic! It's encouraged me to DIY
