Anybody done this yet. Might have to replace mine soon, just wondered if anyone has any pointers. it looked straight forward enough in the manual.

Don't know if it mentions it in the manual, but it's always a good idea (at least I've read it's a good idea in dirt bike magazines, thus followed they're advice onn the many clutches I've replaced) to soak at least the friction plates in oil before you put them in. The idea is that it makes sure everything is lubed up properly before you start out again, limiting initial wear.

Probably not relevant, but....

My old Trident is still on the road with close to 45,000 miles on the clock. Still has the factory clutch, and it was drag raced regularly for three years. Pisses off the 'Busa / ZX12 / GSXR crowd who are replacing a clutch or more a season.

It started to slip at WOT. Gonna play with it this w/e and see how much adjustment is left. I'd rather replace the friction plates than wait too long and screw up the expensinve bits.

Warned you not to put that automotive oil in there with the friction modifiers.
