On this diagram it's part # 12
The clutch slipped all the time despite new plates and a used basket in great shape. It was caused by the in and out play the clutch had. If I adjusted the clutch so it wouldn't slip it would not disengage all the way. The transmission never produced any metal shavings during multiple oil changes in attempt to remove the clutch friction material sludge that was present in the trans. I'm hoping I can save this trans because the engine itself is in good shape and has great compression. I'd like to try to port this spare engine or at least have a functional spare engine for my bike.
