      Hi again warp, Checked Cam chain tensioner drop for first time. 22mm drop and a 3mm shorter than new spring. Going to spacer it now and order parts. Guessing tensioner can be reset when off, so new spring (73mm). New chain, both blades. Is there anything else I'll need? Hoping to do job from front without removing engine. Is that possible?

        The Drop was 22mm; shocking. bikes only done 8000 mile. previous owner never checked this (why would he?). Ordering parts tomorrow: chain blades and spring. Can it be done thru the front?

        Yes you can stick the blades in thru the front clutch cover. You just have to smile and hold your face straight but it can be done. I've done it myself.:D

      Help. Tool T-3880068 is it necessary or will a depth gauge on a set of calipers work? 16mm for plunger?

        If your talking about their go no gauge you do not need it calipers will ill do fine16 mm or more drop requires the spacer which can be made out of a 10 mm bolt shank .355"long. It increases the spring tension on the unit.

      Hey Warp, have you ever thought about going and running your bike at TX2K? Just wondering. I thought about going next year, but I don't have as much bike as you do lol!

        I have thought about land speed racing at the texas mile or the Ohio mile but have not followed thru. I would love to be in the 200 mph club. But I must admit the last couple crashes I have had had tamed me down a wee bit. It didn't take much just 6 fractures of three vertebra and a broken wrist, got my attention.

        What's the fastest you have gone to date? I've been talking to my buddy who took his zx10r down to tx2k17. He said he usually hits around 190mph. Do you think that's too crazy to do on a rocket?

      yo yo yo Warp Im having oil sending light issues . Full of oil .Just had new clutch put in. but light comes on kinda oarnger then turns Red . then goes out and maybe doesn't come on for 20 miles ?? Can I add a gauge instead .
      1. warp9.9

        Is the arrow pointing to the oil gauge or water temp. 09 and older only has the one light and a black led arrow the shows the problem. Either way I would wonder if whoever did the clutch did not line the drive dog on the water pump up which could also cock things up on the oil pump drive chain.

        you or whoever removed the the basket then the drive pins might not be in the back of the basket. These drive pins drive both oil pumps and the water pump. When you put the radiator on and filled it did you bleed the air out of the head. The bleed screw is right above the thermostat housing. Maybe you have air in the head.

      Hi
      I was told you was the go to guy for any tips or advice you may have on how to replace my detent spring on my 06 classic. So far I have the front engine cover of and can see where the spring used to be attached. I need to remove the clutch outer drum to get to the detent spring, is there any way to remove the whole clutch drum without removing the plates?

      And any other advice would be appreciated.

      Thanks...

        in short yes you have to take the clutch fibers and steels out but not until you go back together with it.

        You will also need to take of the pressure plate and springs just to get at the nut. Now after you get the nut off you could pull the basket with the clutch inside so you have it stacked right but you will have to take out the clutch parts before you go back on with the basket. It sis easy just keep them in the same order.
