    Amazing tutorial!

    We can understand the bike much better!
    I'm gonna be doing the belt service this week.

    I wonder what milage / km you had on your bike Pete.
    I'm asking because of the clutch state you mentioned.
    I'm considering to have that done too while in there as labour costs will apply if I have to open up again just for the clutch.

    I know every bike is different due to riding style and purpose. But just to get a rough idea...

    Thanks!

    Go ride!



    I hope this has been helpful. The whole operation, including taking pics for you lot of fuckwits and correcting my own stuff-ups took about six hours. If I'd been concentrating purely on getting it done it would of taken me a bit less but to do 'All of it' is a fairly major and time consuming job. No more so though than doing a clutch on a Guzzi or in a car.

    As you say, clutch life will depend very much on how the bike is used. Commuting in London is obviously going to be a lot more demanding than riding around the southern tablelands of New South Wales.

    Really the only way to know is to look and measure. Whether the clutch pack needs replacing is obviously up to whoever is doing the inspection.

    My bike is now up to nearly 70,000km and the last time I was in there the clutch was at most half worn but as I say my bike is used mainly for touring duties in rural areas, not the traffic light GP in the city.
