Am I doing this right?

Installing slipper on my 2008 1098S but in my shop manual this nut is not coming/showing up at all??

It is 19mm hex and I'm cranking on it, alot and can't seem to bugde it.

Anyone tried to get this nut off before?

Raf

Ravill,

I haven't swapped out my clutch but yes, that nut is suppose to come off. You need a clutch tool to hold the basket so you can remove that nut.

Take a look at this...

its from EVR. They are removing the OEM clutch (although not on a 1098, but still a Duc (not Ducaca!) so it's very similar) and replacing it with an EVR slipper.

Once you view Step 1 you should see all the related other steps. View all 22, you'll get a better idea!!

Hope this helps.

Yes it will come off, like smeegle said you need the clutch basket holding tool and a breaker bar. I installed the ducati corse slipper on mine. I used the clutch basket holding tool and about a two foot breaker bar.

I bought a clutch basket tool from phil 1098 over on "1098-forum". Extremely well made and 95.00 bucks I believe. It is a "must have" to get that socket head out. Don't even try it without one or you'll wreck stuff.
Put on my EVR with it.

Use an impact, It'll spin right out. You'll still need to hold the hub with a strap wrench or put a bar through the hub posts, it's easier if you have someone to help you.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I'll try those.

Here in this vid,

http://br.youtube.com/watch?v=gI4vF8...eature=related

The guy is taking off a bolt that looks different than mine above.

Mine looks like it takes a big allen head (19mm) and the shop manual (as well as that vid) shows the bolt as a "regular" bolt, ie non-allen.

Have you guys taken this allen head bolt off that looks like mine?

I'm thinking about just dropping it off at the dealer, because how often do you guys think I'll be taking the clutch basket apart after this?

Here's a nice tool, nicely priced!

It's a 19mm allen socket head same as mine. Now I mean no offense to 10-6 'cause he knows his stuff, but I would not put a bar through the basket slots to hold it. That bolt has a ton of torgue on it and you run the risk of either breaking or at the very least deforming the basket slots if you use a bar. Yes the tool is expensive and you may only use it once but it's alot cheaper than a new basket. If you want I'll gladly loan you mine if you'll pay the shipping.
