It feels like the clutch isnt doing anything. wondering whether to get a low milage clutch and try that but might try replacing the tophat and washers first. How difficult is it to get the clutch basket off? And are the part numbers the same in the uk.

Inspect as you disassemble your clutch. After clutch cover has been removed, check for lateral movement of clutch assembly. Remove clutch pressure plate, clutch hub nut can be loosened by selecting a high gear (5th), put brake pedal back on and hold down. Loosen nut. Disassemble and inspect everything and post some pics. :biggrin:
Good luck. :drinks:

I warped my outer basket one time and had a similar issue. I may have an extra basket or two laying around my house, if so you can have it if you think it will help

That's pretty vague. Not doing anything?
It's either not hooking up or it's not releasing but it can't not be doing both. :sarcastic:

Replaced top hat and washers. Not really any signs of major wear.
Sadly the problem is still there. Clutch doesn't seem to work. i can move the clutch pivot lever and see the pressure plate moving out but when in gear clutch doesn't engage.
I'm beginning to suspect the ebc clutch pack. When i pulled it today all the plates were stuck together again even though i soaked them before i rebuilt it. Clutch basket seems ok, no major grooves in the basket and the lever moves smoothly.
guess i'll look on fleabay for a 2nd hand oem clutch pack.

I bought the kit, it has 7 drive plates and 7 driven plates, however the manual shows 8th driven plate type number 2 and another 8th drive plate type number 2. Shouldn't I replace them too?

What does soaking the fiber plates in oil overnight do?

Actually the manual is wrong in its numbering. There is one each #1 plate (drive and driven) and seven #2 plates. (the plates are numbered on one of the tabs for the clutch basket. The #1 plate is made of a different material than the #2 plates. The number one plate is retained by a spring wire ring. The plate has a spring behind it that must be compressed to remove the clip and the plate. It would be a good idea to at least inspect this plate and see if it's within spec before installing the new #2 plates. :good:
