Recently i changed the clutch friction plates on my s1000rr, while assembling all the stuff back to its place i forgot to use a torque wrench to tight up the screws which goes into the pressure plate. Now im paying the price for it since it seems like one of the screw/spring popped out and started to wear on the inside of the clutch cover. I got to know this after removing the clutch cover. The problem is that i have alot of “metal shavings” (english is not my first language btw) all over the place and i dont know how to get rid of it. Any suggestions? Thank you : )
Welcome. Your best bet would be to clean as much of the metal shavings as you can from what you have access too. Then I would drain the oil and replace the oil filter as well. If you are using the clutch to wheelie you are just causing the clutch plates wear prematurely and it will wear quicker. You will also stretch your cable quicker. That's the only real down side. I would hope you put it down smooth like you said as to not damage the forks, wheel, frame and headlights.
Let say that i’ll clean up most of the shavings and drain the oil,actually i’ve already drained it but i will fill up again run the bikes so that i can drain it again and get rid of shavings. dont u think that some will still remain? The q is would it be enough shavings remaining that could cause damage to the engine while it’s circulating?
Thx for the help btw, and should i put this post somewhere else? Hhh such a noob iknow.
So this are some pictures i took, looks messed up. I dont know if i should try to dissemble the whole clutch or what. Im not a mechanic by any means, i was hoping to get some intell from this forum so that i can take it apart by myself if needed.
Yeah thats a problem. Pull the clutch out completely. Will need a clean and maybe replace. How long has all that shaving been in there? God knows where it has circulated. I'd be hoping that hasn't gone through the oil pump or any bearings. Could be big time engine damage if its gone in further.
