Hey guys,
Clutch is starting to slip. Immediately changed oil but still slipping. Suspect I fried the friction disk(s) by over-revving in friction zone with rear brake attempting to improve my topgun slow speed performance.

Question is: Is there anyone out there that has done THEIR OWN WORK on replacing the friction disks? If so, any advice for me? I am a pretty capable wrench turner and have the OEM Manual.

Thanks for any pointers.

Matt

I fired mine doing the same thing.

Your oil will smell burnt.

Have no idea what year, but if it is a 2001 GL1800 order in the following: 5, 6, 7, 8, 20, 28, 29

And parts 1 and 4

You will also need oil and filter. You can do it from a center stand with the tank removed and alternator. You will need a way to hold the clutch basket from turning. That can be done with a really large pair of water pump plyers or get the correct tool from Honda. Reinstall the discs the same way they cam out ... the chamfer (soft side) in.

Thanks-any other tips?

Greg,
Thanks for the tip. Any other tips for me?
Fuel tank I can remove no problem, also the alternator. So after I:
1) remove top shelter
2) fuel tank
3) alternator

Is it pretty straightforward work to get the basket out and replace the friction disks? Any other tips I should be aware of?

How much time did it take you?

Thanks again.
Matt
